Each ISP is given a range of IP addresses, so it could either be different individuals or the same individual who has connected and disconnected a few times.

If you have a home network or a corporate network, devices are usually assigned "internal" IP addresses by a Network Address Translator (NAT) located within your router or modem. The NAT hides the internal IP addresses from websites, making the entire home network appear to outside computers to have a single, "external" IP address. In that case, you will only see the external IP address assigned to your home. Other network configurations, such as proxies, can also cause the IP address received by Google to differ from the actual IP address of your computer. [Summarized from Google support]
