    The story is here .

    Basically, 66% of businesses secure their Wi-Fi, which is up from 37% last year. Sounds like free surfing if you've a laptop in central London:)

    I'm glad to see more people using WEP and the like to secure their home systems, as well. One year ago, I could find open systems all around my apartment building. All are now protected. It's nice to see security becoming a conscious effort for more users.

    Personally, I can't imagine running an open system.

    Soho Sq used to have a couple, infact a lot of Soho was wired and fired up... less now.

    I'm wondering what you could find around The City though.... heheh
