Well, it may be 475,000 or even post 500,000 now, but the
question is...of those 475,000 how many of them are of people who have
two or more accounts!

Given some of the postings I've seen in various UK newsgroups,
it would seem some folks are signing up and getting several accounts.

Again, it is really hard to draw a like for like with say Demon,
UUNET Dial etc, largely due to the fact it is free any anyone can sign
up and get an account. It will be interesting to see what the "churn"
is like with Freeserve eg: the number of accounts that are dropped on a
monthly basis.
