I dont think anyone can likely steal internet from your connection since, each modem has its own MAC address and it is assigned to your account only. If it was a wireless internet connection then internet stealing could have been possible if you have not set up a password to protect it. Due to FUP, now a days only internet is limited to certain speeds when the fup is achieved.
