They very distinctly said one PC. There were astounded when I told them 
we'd paid for 5 email addresses (we paid for 5 IP's) and they were not 
ALL being used from one machine. While I have phrased it at times as 5 
email addresses, during installation and prior conversations it was 
DEFINITELY 5 independent IP addresses. But those terms change without 
notice monthly, and when they do, Comcast throws out the records of 
prior deals (I mean this literally, not figuratively, any deal older 
than 2 months is purged from their system). It may depend on who you 
ask, but I brought it all the way up to the manager there at the time, 
he claims a lot of things that were not true. The word that comes to 
mind is something like "hogwash". Apparently they are pushing to gain 
new "optional features" that people can pay more from, as well as trying 
to remove more than one IP from each household as a newer policy.
