Actually it's closer to a dozen streets. A single node can serve several thousand homes, even tens of thousands in extreme cases. A single bonding group will serve several hundred different users, potentially close to one thousand.
However, in no case should background activity on the DOCSIS network or data intended for other users ever cause any lights on your Superhub to flash.
Quite often the blue light on my superhub doesnt flash for ages when all my computers are off. So does this mean I have my own bonding group?
Seems to be very low activity here unless I'm actually using the connection myself!
