Default Would would BT do...

Purely hypothetically, what would BT do about a
company that was sharing a single-user broadband
account, say for the sake of argument 'BT Business
500 Plug and Go', across a LAN of about 40 PC's
if they were to be told about it by a disgruntled
ex-employee?

BT often indicate a single PC is to be connected with their supplied
USB modem. Whether their T+C describe this more fully I know not.

If they were told, and unhappy, then unless the firm was only part
way into a 12 month contract, switching to another ISP would be an
easy matter and perhaps save them cash, so the informant might even
be doing the firm a favour, whatever his/her intentions :-) Peter M.

Depends on account that is opened by new customer, but good value ISP IMO.

They would do absolutely nothing. There is nothing in the terms and conditions
to say you cannot share the connection, they just will not support it if there
is a problem with it. I had Business 500 adsl 4 years ago and shared it over 3
pc's. 3 pc's or 40, it makes no difference.

They'd wonder how 40 employees could put up with having to share 512 kbs
between them :P

Nothing at all. the only interest maybe, will be to
try and sell the customer a 1meg or 2 meg service :-)

Let me guess, you're the disgruntled ex-employee? What, just been fired and
hoping to get a bit of revenge in?

Some semi-interesting responses so far. That fact that BT's
'Business 500 Plug and Go' package is 29.99 a month
whereas their 'Share 500' package is 45 a month, and
their 'Network 500' package is 65 a month (all excluding
VAT) suggests that BT might no be as laissez-faire as
some in this NG have suggested...

No, the higher priced options come with a router and support, that's
what you're paying for - there's nothing to stop a company networking
the lower priced option if they want to source equipment and support
elsewhere. Playing tell-tale is such a sad little attempt at revenge
- can't you think of anything better to do?
