When you're paying for your home Internet, the last thing you want is to have someone join the network and use your bandwidth. This may end up costing you money if your bandwidth usage surpasses your monthly limit. If you live remotely, you don't really need to worry about someone using your connection.

The American Registry for Internet Numbers, or ARIN, assigns IPv4 prefixes for IP addresses. These blocks can then be sold to businesses who assign these IP addresses out, such as Internet service providers and cell phone companies.

If you have access to high speed Internet service, such as DSL, cable, or fiber optic, you should make the switch.
