Already looked into this.  Rogers will NOT provision a commercial cable modem 
at a residential address.  Doesn't matter if I have a home based business, 
they look up the address and if the zoning is residential, you ONLY have 
residential.

I've considered buying a modem, installing it at a business and then MOVING 
the modem to my house, but I haven't actually tried it yet.

I have to agree; the business cable modem at the office here is very good.
