FON, a wireless services company that raised over $21.7 million from Google, Skype and Sequoia Capital earlier this year is putting its money to use now – by offering a tiny wireless router that lets you become a Fonero instantly and costs $5. I guess they are heavily subsidizing the device they call, La Fonera. The company designed the router which emits two SSIDs and allows you to create two wireless channels – one private and one social. Martin Varsavsky, founder of FON demos it on this video.
FON’s new tiny wireless router, and the easiest way to join the FON Community and make your connection wireless. It provides great security with two wireless networks: a FON social channel and your own private channel.
