    Modem inside the mobile/smartphone is a whole computer in itself running closed proprietary software. It is fully operational without main CPU or phone’s OS. In many implementations it can read/change main memory content without OS assistance/knowledge and/or subvert kernel’s trusted operations. Here at 16:45 you can find Werner Almesberger’s quick explanation of what additional hardware they have to put in neo900 to alleviate this issue.
    P.S. Technically you can have FLOSS modem implementation however it is next to impossible to receive “blessing” for selling/distributing/connecting those. It is almost universally true that mere act of connecting a non blessed modem to a network is punishable by low.

    For ad blocking, I am using AdBlock Plus and UBlock Origin. Both work well.
