I was always under the impression that every node that you add to a mesh
network that cannot directly see a node elsewhere in the mesh will half
your current bandwidth.

I know that a simple repeater halves your bandwidth because it has to
listen, then transmit, then listen, then transmit.  Doubles the amount
of data that is transmitted, effectively. If the repeater can overlap
it's transmission with receiving, then maybe that decrease would be
minimized.
