FON Offers £5 Wireless Broadband Router Discount

Posted: 14th Nov, 2008 By: MarkJ
FON, the service that allows broadband users to share their connection out with others, is offering £5 off its new FONSpot router to help beat the credit-crunch blues this Christmas - available until 30th November for just £24.99 at Dabs.

The 2-port edition of FON’s Fonera Wi-Fi router, the FONSpot, gives anybody with a broadband connection the ability to share their Internet connection “securely” with the FON community and in return roam on all 400,000 hotspots around the world for free:

Alex Puregger, Business Development Director at FON said: “The FONSpot is the ideal present this Christmas and at just £24.99 is an amazing deal for a lifetime of free WiFi access. Visit http://www.dabs.com/go/fonoffer to get your £5 discount on your FONSpot and join the largest WiFi community in the world. We have over a million members across more than 150 countries. Our vision is free WiFi everywhere - check out http://maps.fon.com to find out where our FON hotspots are located.”

The FONSpot also gives access to the BT FON network - BT Home Hub routers whose owners have already opted to join the 120,000 strong FON community in the UK. If you have a FONSpot you will gain 120 minutes of free access to BT Openzone’s 3,000 premium hotspots in airports, hotels, cafes and other public areas across the UK.

However before considering the FON network it’s important to make sure that your ISP will allow its use. More than a few include clauses to restrict such sharing since this would raise your data consumption and could potentially become a security risk. Likewise issues surrounding shared networks and illegal downloads could be another concern.
