Fon Teams With Romtelecom in Romania
MADRID -- Fon, the global WiFi network and Romtelecom, leading communications services provider in Romania, announced today a partnership to offer Romtelecom customers free access to WiFi hotspots in Romania and to almost 13 million WiFi hotspots abroad.
All Romtelecom Internet customers with a compatible router (currently Huawei HG 658) can become Fon members for free: in exchange for sharing a portion of their own bandwidth at home, they will receive free access to shared broadband connections of other Romtelecom customers in Romania and of Fon customers in other countries. Romtelecom subscribers just need to activate the Fon functionality by calling 1930 or by accessing the Romtelecom self care online application to receive their username and password and connect.
Fon technology makes it possible to broadcast two powerful, dedicated WiFi signals from a broadband Internet source. One signal is encrypted and private. The other signal is public but only accessible via password to other registered Fon members.
