In the UK most of us get screwed by British Telecon (?Telecom) on our metered access to the internet.
However between certain hours there is a freecall number to the internet. Free internet access from a UK freephone number. Cool! It takes up 10 attempts to get a connection and it only lasts for 1 hour before you get cut off.
So Europe isn't that bad. This totaly free offer is only Mon-Fri 8pm - Midnight and 9am - 5pm weekends.
