How is this done ?

2 separate modems in same box ? or a single modem which gets 2 separate
IPs and applies rate limiting independently on each IP ?

BTW, it isn't just the electricity, but also climate control and
location which the subscriber provides for free.  Comcast need not rent
space on poles and need not buy more expensive weatherized equipment
that goes outdoors.
