What’s the deal with FON? When I planned my trip to Barcelona recently I thought for sure I’d be able to take advantage of Free wifi in Fon’s home country.
Like a good Fonero, I made sure my FON was active and sharing well in advance yet when I arrived in Spain, I found ZERO Foneros through my travels. My N810 and N95 were actively connected most of the time and when they were not connected I was usually looking to connect. Whle most of the trip was spent in the conference area, I did walk around Barcelona and Vilanova and yet I still found nothing …
If there’s no sharing and tons of free Fons out there (according to FON) whats the model exactly? I’m happy to have got8ten a free router from them as they “expanded” into the US, but I’m thinking the hardware is going to evolve into a weekend hacking project since there’s clearly no benefit to maintaining an account with FON.
