Fears over Internet Broadband connections being hi-jacked reminds users for the need to secure their home networks
17th April 2007

Warnings have been issued following radio news reports today that a quarter of Home Wireless networks are insecure.The radio report on BBC five live went on to feature a police spokesman who explained that this could lay a innocent (insecured) wireless home user open to being investigated by police for fraud or even accused of downloading child pornography.

The situation arises if a Broadband ADSL Connection is fitted with a Wireless Router or Hub and security is not set up on the unit when it is installed. This can mean any person sitting in a car outside the premises can pick up the connection and use it to connect to unsavoury sites or even download illegal material. What people often don't realise is that the rental of a Broadband connection comes with an acceptable useage policy (AUP) which obligates the renter to legal usage of the internet link (and rightly so). Should the link be used for illegal purposes however, the traffic can be traced to the Broadband connection the material was accessed from using the IP address, and this can lead to police having no choice but to investigate all the computers which use the connection. Broadband users who permit neighbours or friends to use their connection may also be at risk in this. Whilst in the example of someone stealing access to an unsecured wireless connection from a nearby car perhaps, it would no doubt end with the computers being declared free of the illicit content, the embarrassment and interference, not to mention disruption and worry, would be considerable.

The message is clear - secure your wireless connection NOW! 4 SQR can assist with this either remotely with telephone based Router configuration support for £20+vat or a full on site install from £40+vat. Call now, or email to book an appointment.

Meeting this market demand is precisely what 4 SQR achieve using various supplers currently," Panter explains, "and gradually, we are bringing services under the 4 SQR banner. This strengthens the service offering, and simplifies the solution for the end customer, therefore ultimately providing better value for money."

"IP or not IP ? That is the question." 4SQR add to telecoms portfolio with Voice over Internet Protocol Telephone System Solutions.
20 May 2006

As the world puts more and more minutes across the Internet using Skype and other Voice over IP telephony solutions, the SME business market needed a quality and flexible solution to really take advantage. 4 SQR has been following one such product over the last year in its development, and believes the latest version known as V3 of VOIspeed meets exactly the criteria.

"There are significant advantages to using the internet for calls these days" explains Nigel Panter, director with 4 SQR."Not only the obvious opportunity for free calls, but true flexible telephony solutions which are low cost but permit a new degree of freedom for example for remote workers or multiple small sites. An employee working on a broadband line can be every bit as connected as those in the office, and all those in the company can see even when they are engaged on the phone!". VOIspeed is a professional Telephone System which runs as a software program on a PC and will provide telephone access for SIP phones (dedicated phones which communicate using Session Internet Protocol across a Local or Wide Area Network) or Soft phones (software running on a PC with a handset or headset connected to a USB port on the PC) across a combination of SIP lines, ISDN lines, or Analogue Lines.

In the first few weeks of supporting the product, 4 SQR installed the system in 3 seperate businesses in Kent, the first being Ashford based Channelmoving.com (specialists in removals between UK and France). 4 SQR have recently been accredited as the key Reseller of VOIspeed in the South East by the UK distributer Telecoms.co.uk

Nigel Panter, Director of 4 SQR Ltd is to take up the challenge to scale of the highest peak of Africa, Kilimanjaro at 5895m in Feb 2006. He is leading a team of people to raise money for a school bus which is needed by children in the outskirts of Kenya capital Nairobi.

Three members of his church, Christ Church in Herne Bay, together with his brother Tim, from Bristol, and other friends from the UK will join 8 Kenyan climbers to attempt the 8 day trek. They will brave sub zero temperatures and life-threatening altitude sickness scaling the highest freestanding volcano in the world. Whilst thousands attempt the trek each year, it claims 20-50 lives each year. For Panter, who was born in Kenya along with his siblings, it will be his first return to children from the Nairobi schoolKenya since 1971. "I am thrilled to be coming back to my birth place", he says "and great to be able to do so for such a positive reason albeit a tremendous challenge. The children in Nairobi have significant distances to travel to school and the streets are dangerous. The bus will ensure their safety as well as make the school more accessible to more children."

The group are looking to raise over £20,000 for the new School bus, and are busy in various fundraising activities. The trek is being sponsored and anyone or business wishing to contribute can do so at www.justgiving.com/nigelpanter.

Ofcom adds a new number range (020) 3 for new London customers
20th May 2005

Ofcom launches public information campaign to support introduction of (020) 3 London telephone numbers. Ofcom today began a public information campaign to raise awareness of London (020) 3 numbers. Ofcom announced (020) 3 as an additional number range for London in July 2004 to meet the capital’s growing needs for new telephone numbers.

The additional (020) 3 number range will be used alongside the existing (020) 7 and (020) 8 numbers. (020) 3 will be given out to some residential and business customers who put in a new line or apply for a new telephone number from late summer onwards.

It is important to note that this is not a code change; existing residential and business customers do not need to change their existing telephone number.

Ofcom announced in November 2004 that it will release the first blocks of (020) 3 numbers to telecoms companies from 1 June 2005. Telecoms companies will then start to issue these numbers to residential and business customers in London later in the summer.

A public information campaign will begin today across London and the South East explaining the (020) 3 numbers. Ofcom is also working with telecoms companies who will begin to inform their customers over the next few months as part of their regular written communications.

Ofcom’s own campaign includes:

4,000 advertisements in London Underground carriages.
Advertisements in the Evening Standard, Metro and 72 local newspapers across London and the South-East. Distribution of leaflets to public libraries, Citizens Advice Bureaux and doctors' surgeries. Information leaflet sent with every routine Ofcom licence mailing. Hot link to (020) 3 information from the home page of the Ofcom website at www.ofcom.org.uk.
