TIP 1:

As is often the case with open source (in my experience anyway) the tools were there for the taking, but the directions required a bit of hunting, plus some trial and error. I am posting this with a full tunnel from my neighbor's "borrowed" wifi back to my LAN and back out through my ISP and then back through the tunnel again!

The benefits being cost savings, which would seem to be a very high UK Government priority and avoiding a situation in the future where a monopolistic vendor might feel they can feather their nest with an initial generous deal followed by less favourable terms once...
