Re: [Bill] Two Accounts - One Address?

said by travelguy:

Hypothetical question: Tenant is renting a room in someones house. Tenant wishes to have a separate HSI account from homeowner. Same cable from the pole, same coax throughout the house. Clearly it's technically no problem. Will Comcast do this, or do they limit one account per single family address?

Some areas are one address, one modem. Best to call in about this and check your local area franchise's policy.

It's a subtle problem. I know it used to be somewhat common to order a second modem on the same account to get more bandwidth before DOCSIS 2 or 3. This would be a totally isolated account for billing purposes. I guess I'll have to call Comcast and see what they say.

But you don't get more "bandwidth" / available capacity by having another drop line from the tap. It's all shared bandwidth on the local node / segment anyway.

Agreed! I'm just saying that more bandwidth is not what I'm looking for in this situation. I just want an independent connection from the main house for billing purposes.
