Fon (Fon Wireless Ltd.) is a company that operates a system of dual access wireless networks. Fon is the largest Wi-Fi network in the world, with over 3 million hotspots.

Members are called Foneros and they agree to share a bit of their Wi-Fi signal, so that they can connect to other Foneros’ hotspots.

Consumers who do not share their internet connection can buy Wi-Fi access passes or credit from Fon. Fon members whose hotspots are used to access Wi-Fi by a paying customer can receive part of the revenue.
