Deutsche Telekom has formed a partnership with FON with the goal of offering pervasive Wi-Fi coverage in Germany.
Fon currently supports more than eight million Fon Spots that comprise the world's largest WiFi network, with more than nine million subscribers. In Great Britain, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Croatia, Fon customers share their broadband lines and, in return, they receive access to millions of WiFi spots around the world and free of charge. Fon also serves a large WiFi community in Brazil. Telekom customers who join the Fon community will be able to surf the Internet free of charge while visiting the Copacabana during the FIFA World Cup next year.
Telekom currently serves 12 million broadband lines in Germany and has more than 12,000 hotspots.
