instead of drafting out and enforcing a policy to restrict an organisation's staff
from using a modem to connect to their own ISP's
what are some other ways to restrict ppl connecting to internet through the modem
(either in a notebook or PC)?

set up a code of conduct:

i.e. tell them they can surf/check email

for 1/2 an hour at lunch, maybe the start of day and the end of day, that
way they have the best of both worlds, any one abuses the system face the
punishment,, 3 strikes and your out, style rule,, check phone
bills/logs etc find out who is dialing /when /what to /how long etc
If you stop it totally you will Pee ppl off, so meet them half way!

organisation's staff
the modem

Shoot them. That will permanently remove their ability to use the modem. :-)

Why don't you make a policy, making it clear that the policy _is the rule_
and take some measures to enforce it ?

Cooperative and educated users are infinitly better then technological

If you run or assist in running an organization I'd suggest learning
how to spell. It will make you less prone to have to deal with people
breaking the rules- people are less likely to disrespect literate
