I have cable access at home, with what is probably the largest
of the companies offering internet access, and they absolutely make it clear
that
connecting more than 1 PC is NOT allowed.

Does that stop people from your a proxy or NAT?
No, but it is considered theft of services.

Ever hear of someone getting arrested stealing cable TV services with a
cheater box?
Well this is the cyber version of that.
