Why do you want to be online all the time? Are you running a server which
should be accessible from the internet?
Do you have adsl or the like available?

How do I disconnect an user when the traffic is below a certain limit?
How do I limit the number of connects daily from an user?
How do I limit the number of minutes daily per user?
