I have not heard of this. We typically purchase a connection and bring 
our own IP space. The capacity of the connection and the number of IP 
addresses (if any) are unrelated to each other.

That said, I would find a bonded ethernet connection acceptable in some 
applications. Bonded ethernet generally works well to increase aggregate 
bandwidth when used by multiple hosts whose individual bandwidth is well 
below the speed of each link in the bond. With few hosts, bonded 
ethernet connections are not likely to work well to increase bandwidth 
and would generally be unsuitable for providing connectivity to a single
