Re: Bad premise

I had an office in a building run by the council a while back, they offered internet access (for a fee). I had a chat with their tech guy about it, turned out support was only available during council office hours, I would be connected behind their firewall which would restrict my internet access based on council rules and best of all it was twice the price of getting my own phone line connected with adsl broadband. When I suggested this he told me I wouldn't be able to run my own wifi in my office as the building cisco wifi points would actively attack and block my wifi (his words). I always find it useful to play it dumb when asking questions to get a true picture of someones understanding and honesty.
