I've heard that cable high-speed internet access is shared. If I went this route, I could be sharing my connection with my neighbors, thus slowing my connection. I've also heard that providers WILL NOT tell you how many households are on you segment.
In Phoenix, AZ, Cox Communications offers 4 levels/tiers of high speed internet access. My question is, would I share my connection with my all my neighbors who(m) subscribe to *ANY* level/tier of service, or would I share it with just the ones who(m) subscribe to the same level/tier of service that I subscribe to?
Also, since cable companies will not disclose how many households are on my segment, how many households could be on my segment? 100? More? Less?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide,
