This website is aimed at consumers and is a big hit in the UK for people wanting to save money.
This section of the website is extremely useful for businesses as well as residential as it gives the cheapest dialler numbers for dialing either Internationally or UK numbers - whether geographic numbers or not.
A lot of these services are actually cheaper than Skype and a lot of other VoIP services, so you can save lots of money when used regularly. If your telephone is programmable (or you use a mobile) it's even easier to save.
The BBC have done a report on unsecured wifi networks in the UK. There's still a huge number of people running unsecured wireless networks. Sometimes while on a customers site in Central London I will see up to 10 networks surrounding me and quite often a good 1/4 of them are unsecured.
When I did my own informal walk around London with my PDA on the 28th July last year, (I commented on it here at the time) I came across on one street near me and I picked up 46 unsecured wireless networks on that one street alone. Admittedly I didn't check it out thoroughly, so I didn't check whether they were locked down by MAC address, and at least 12 of them had the same name so I'm sure they were part of a hotspot network. But it was still an eye opener.
It does stagger me that unsecure networks still exist in such a dense population centre such as London. I think it's possibly going to take a criminal using someones Internet access point to commit a high profile crime to draw attention to the issue. The problem I think is getting better as more access points and routers have easy setup procedures that include WEP/WPA setup etc, and I've seen myself that it's certainly been improved by ISP's since I made that comment 8 months ago. But it's going to take a while before the existing unsecure setups get outmoded and replaced.
