BT and FON have joined forces to create a Wi-Fi community that allows its members to connect for free in thousands of places around the UK and the world.
Any BT Internet/Broadband customer can join for free and those with Home Hubs can also be set up a HotSpot for other customers.
Anyone doing this seems to get:
- free access to other BT customers WiFi hotspots
- free access to BT Openzone hotspots
- free access to any FON Hotspot anywhere in the world.
Note: that is someone else uses your connection as a hotspot, it doesn't come out of your own usage allowance and contains security so they are 100% separated from your own home network
Anyone opting in will be sent a firmware upgrade to their Home Hub (if they have one) from Monday
