Fears over Internet Broadband connections
being hi-jacked reminds users for the need to secure their home
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.
Changes in Broadband Migraton process
introduced by BT may affect pricing

time now, and it is great to be able to provide a complete solution."

see 4 SQR launch its own SIP service for IP voice lines which are
delivered over broadband. 4 SQR provide IP PBX solutions using VOIspeed
- Europe's leading software based IP phone system.
"4 SQR is seeing a ground-swell of interest
from small to medium businesses in using Broadband as a means for
delivering calls, internet traffic for web and email, and other
interactive applications. Meeting this market demand is precisely
what 4 SQR achieve using various supplers currently," Panter
explains, "and gradually, we are bringing services under the

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

Kenya capital Nairobi.
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 Kenya
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
