Looks great! Now if only they’d sell them in Canada…..
In addition to saving you some dollars when you are roaming on other people’s wifi – FON also has the option of earning YOU some money if you live in the right place. You can become a partner in selling the wifi and then you get part of the revenue. People who life in high traffic/high tourist areas can make plenty of money from FON.
Squidoo lens of FON has more details
@JOHN BEALES – you can also turn your current WRT54G into a FON router…
Can I pay for it in flooz?
All this sounds too good, but is it possible to share your broadband connection without getting written permission from your ISP and will I really benefit from other people’s WiFi without sitting on their porches?
