I think it may have already been slightly mentioned, but any reason why
this is not being rolled out on a separate radio than the private customer
facing one?  Even if the bandwidth out to the internet is separated with
DOCSIS channels, you are still using the same radio and one user streaming
a large amount of data could bog down the radio.  I have seen 1 or 2
clients destroy speed and cause large amounts (adding 100+ms) of latency
for all clients connected to the same radio.
