Pen testing / Vuln Assessment from Cable Modem - question on service provider selection
From: tommymay () comcast net (Tommy May)

Wondering if anyone else has had the same challenge...

Issue - A standard nessus scan or nmap will choke my service from a standard home based cable modem service.

I currently use comcast, standard home-based cable modem service.  I am considering going the business class route, but 
before I pay for all the extra money, do any of you all have any advice?

I need to have a solid provider that is "used to dealing with pen-test like customer businesses"... is there someone 
that you all may be able to recommend that won't cost an arm and a leg and will meet the requirements? (i.e. one that's 
home based, allows it to happen, has pen-testing customers. and doesn't cost any more than 100.00 a month).

I am too far from the local telco for DSL also.

Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
