How to hide some info from ISP?

HI . .

i though about my place on internet and the size of information the ISP can collect about me! .. in a LAN user administrator could collect much info about clients, is it the same thing for ADSL ISP!?  i have ADSL internet connection.. what info can the ISP collect about me? ..

and is there a way to change or hide the ADSL modem MAC address!? in a LAN we could do this easily.. is that possible in an ADSL? .. what methods else i can protect myself from the ISP!? ..

thank you

You could ditch your broadband and then get a dial up account.  They would only know your name and credit card.

They have to have a unique MAC to communicate with you.  You could change your MAC assuming you can come up with something unique.

After that, you could subscribe to a public VPN service so you tunnel and encrypt all your traffic to the vpn service, so you ISP couldn't monitor what kind of traffic you're sending/receiving.

would u provide more details please?
Yes but then wouldnt the VPN provider have it?

could also check out
then they would have it

Your ISP is going to know about your physical address and who you are unless:

1.) You lie
2.) You steal someone elses' connection.
