Thanks. Any suggestions as to what I can do to check that the public SSID is on a different sub-net?

Connect to the secured one and see what the IP/subnet is then connect to the public one and see what the IP/subnet is.

A VPN connection is a secure tunnel, traffic traveling across it cannot 'see' anything else on the network it is passing across, all it can 'see' is the other endpoint of the VPN connection which is going to be a server at Fon.

In the same way you can't see anything if you go through a tunnel apart from the inside of the tunnel.

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale)
