Fon

Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

Op­er­ates glob­ally (in­clud­ing SA through MWEB) Fon is cre­at­ing a global WiFi net­work by get­ting peo­ple to share some of their home WiFi and, in turn, be­ing al­lowed to ac­cess mil­lions of other Fin hotspots world­wide. So you have one hotspot di­vided into two sig­nals – one for your home and the other for a guest or vis­i­tors, cre­at­ing a crowd-sourced net­work. As long as you share your net­work with oth­ers, you have free ac­cess to their net­works when you are in their spots. All you need is a Fon router or a router from one of the Fon telco part­ners.
