Can I play devils advocate?  What is the difference between having multiple
phones on one line, multiple TVs on basic cable, or this?  You are paying for a
service, or bandwidth, how you use it is up to you.  If I have one phone line,
terminating in the kitchen, bedroom, and family room, does that mean I should 
pay
for 3 telephones?  I can only use one at a time.  Our cable company has now gone
to the same thinking, and will come to your house and hook up multiple sets if
you wish (of course you pay installation), but no more per month for the extra
sets.  Now I can understand having two PCs connected to a cable, would use more
bandwidth than one PC, but you are purchasing a service from the cable company,
and how you use it, is your prerogative.
