With Telstras Recent Announcement now is the time to learn about FON

Telstra plans $100m user-driven Wi-Fi network

Telstra has announced a $100 million project to build one of the world’s largest Wi-Fi networks, with the goal of having two million domestic hotspots active nationwide within five years. The network, which Telstra aims to launch in early 2015, will use its broadband customers’ own Wi-Fi modems for the bulk of domestic connectivity. It will also encompass access to around 12 million overseas hotspots operated by Wi-Fi provider Fon.

What is Fon?

Fon is your Global WiFi Network.
It’s built by people just like you.

Fon members share a bit of their home WiFi, and in turn get free access at millions of other Fon hotspots worldwide.

Joining is easy. All you have to do is buy a Fon WiFi router and plug it into your broadband connection. No monthly fees!

Or, if you live in a country where Fon has a telco partner, just sign up with them to become a member.

Where to from here ?

I will keep my eye out for progress on this and let you no what I learn. Just follow this blog. I already have ideas how to redeploy your existing Wi-Fi Router if you need a new one to participate.
