Free Wifi with the BT FON Partnership – Nice
This is neat. It’s been announced today that BT (British Telecom for those who were unaware) have partnered up with FON – a Spanish Wifi company.
Ultimately the partnership with see “hundreds of thousands” of Wifi hotspots created across the UK with the vision to give the whole nation free Wifi internet, well, BT customers at least.
A friend of mine, who ended up moving to Wales and living on a farm, once started a small Wireless network across an area of Blackpool a few years ago and even back then when less people had wireless it seemed to do well – this is certainly the kind of news that could convince people to switch back to the troubled phone operator.
It’s also worth noting that not only will BT customers get access to the UK hotspots, but also in countries all over the world.
If you’re a broadband affiliate in the UK it may well be worth updating your sites as this is a major new selling point.
Well done BT & Fon!
