I'm really surprised if this is IOL policy - almost all domestic accounts
are used by more than person, and it is generally accepted that that will
happen. Normal fair usage policy covers all the people resident in a
house and this seems only logical. What most ISPs will object to is you
giving your logon details to everyone in your street. I'm sure Nick will
enlighten us on IOL's policy though :)
(My sister occassionally uses my account from home and there's no danger
whatsoever of my ISP complaining :)
