FON Launches WiFi Router
FON also announced that, in support of its commitment to grow the WiFi community from coast to coast in the United States, it will host two events in New York and San Francisco in the coming month. At these events, the company will give away routers for FREE to citizens, cafes and other small businesses that want WiFi access today and are not willing to wait for municipal WiFi to come to these cities. The recipients of the routers will "promise" to share their access with others in their community, in return for free access at all FON access points. FON intends to host similar events in major cities across the US in the coming year.
"At FON, we believe in the power of community -- our mission is to connect people and technology so that communication and access to information is simple...anywhere and anytime," said Martin Varsavsky, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FON.
