Would the discussion of 3rd-party hosting be a security question?  And would the solution set include both the end-user's modem/router and firewall?

Scuttlebutt indicates some are concerned their ISP and/or internet access setup includes the ability for outsiders to "piggy-back" for free, thus becoming "3rd-party-hosters".

I recently moved from AT&T DSL over to Spectrum (Charter Communications/Time Warner Cable) for phone, TV, and internet.  Is there an easy way to determine if 3rd-party hosting is enabled or even possible?  I am very new to this concept, hence the questions.
