FON

More on broadband, I was wondering have anyone tried FON service? It’s a great idea, still in its infancy.

If you don’t know what is FON, to describe it in minimal words, it’s a wifi community to enable bandwidth sharing. You can share your bandwidth via FON routers, a pretty good 802.11g wifi router that you can buy from FON shop for €5. These routers must be registered with FON in order to work, once setup it works like any other router, and when you’re away you can log on to any FON network for free using your FON login.

I like this idea, hopefully it will get more attention and user base.

    Yes, it is growing. If you haven’t seen it take a look at the squidoo lens on FON with some basic information http://www.squidoo.com/fon.

    The users are spreading, and it’s a “no lose” deal since the router has value in itself.

    There was a little question about the actual adoption rates – and it’s still a little blurry what’s going on (at least to me) but in the end I’m optimistic about FON.
