Thats a very good point, have to say!

I never really think of the ISP as another network, never imagined BT as "in the family" but it's an interesting point!

So what would they call something that can travel 3 networks? You know, like do VPN or something? I'd be interested in buying one that you can permanently log on to work, if you know what I mean - so it forms like a permanent tunnel, although I don't know whether they exist...

Even if they don't exist, they would be a good idea!
