FON is the world’s largest Wi-fi network, based around home and business members sharing part of their network connection, and then in return receiving free wireless from other users on the network.
The location map shows where you can get your free internet, or if you opt to share your connection but not utilise the network yourself you can earn some cash. The money comes from users on the flip-side who use the network but don’t share their own connection.
It all seems like a good idea, but what makes it better is that the Spanish firm is offering free wireless access points to US, UK and Canadian residents. All you have to do is enter your details and promise to join the Wi-fi sharing scheme.
