Multiple Public IP addresses in Bridge mode?

This may be a dumb question but I cannot find any info on the subject and only just tried this today. I have the CGN2 in bridge mode with port 1 connected to my own custom router/firewall. This has and still is functioning good as normal.

 

I was doing some testing today and plugged my laptop into one of the other ports on the CGN2 and the laptop got a new public IP different from my firewall. I do remember years ago where rogers would charge for extra IP's (before NAT routers were popular) but I was under the assumption that you could only get 1 IP but it appears I can get 2 and possibly more. 

 

Has anyone else tried this? Does rogers still charge for extra IP's? 

 

Not really an issue...just curious more than anything.

 

Thanks,

A couple of others have said this as well.

The good question then is.. IF you do get charged, etc for them.
May be, they dont specficially have to be assigned/allowed.. but if they are found to be running for a period of time, etc.. they will charge you?

Exactly what I was wondering. I could have use for the extra IP's between testing/configuring routers to PS3 gaming with out NAT etc lol.
