How do you know how much each person is using? Different password?

Every device that connects to a network has its own unique MAC (media access control address) which is how a wifi system knows, for example, if you are trying to connect multiple devices when you only have permission to connect a single device. It's my understanding that data usage by each MAC address on a network can be monitored even if all users use a shared password.
