Can U-Verse TV and U-Verse Internet installed separately under one uVerse account?

I have U-Verse internet and will install U-Verse TV. Can I install U-verse TV and U-Verse internet seperately in different rooms far away from each other?

 

I live in a duplex but we share one house address and tenants want tv and we want internet. Will doing this prevent TV from slowing down the internet or am I still sharing bandwidth even if installed seperately meaning cables,wires or whatever from TV are not plugged in my 2wire gateway/router.

 

thank you

Ok11223 - bandwidth is shared without conflict up to 12mb. !* & 24 mb can steal from the TV. With 12 & below, there would be no functional difference between a shared system and two separate systems, The shared system would be less expensive because i requires only one RG and a bundling discount.

With a combined system, both TV and internet are available on all wired connections.

Without a different router, requiring a different address, the internet gateway will be connected to the tv receivers, common bandwjidth shared, tvs have priority. Internet gets what is left, if doing this recommend choosing low internet speed Pro (3/1) or Elite (6/1), else expect problems with someones wants not being met.
