  1. FON

    Fon is a company that operates a system of dual access wireless networks. Fon claims to have the largest Wi-Fi network in the world, with over seven million hotspots. Members, whom the company calls "Foneros", agree to share a part of their bandwidth as a Wi-Fi signal, so that they can connect to other members' hotspots. Consumers who choose not to 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.
