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.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
