Sean, thanks for this. Billy
I cannot speak from personal experience as I got my own kit when signing up with my ISP.
Their advertising campaign seems to indicate they offer you some sort of protection. More and more modem/router devices offer all sorts of interesting features - wireless connectivity, built-in fire walls, email alerts of any network intrusion attempts - the list goes on.
I have a BT router and it's got all of this stuff - although it wasn't provided by them as part of a subscription.
Hope that at least helps somewhat!
