Fon Tops Four Million Wi-Fi Hotspots

There are now over four million Fon hotspots available to users worldwide. The number has grown by 30% since the beginning of the year.

"Four million hotspots is an amazing figure and proof that the Fon model works. Together with the spike we are seeing–one million new hotspots this year alone–the Fon network is achieving the footprint and rapid growth we have dreamed of," said Martin Varsavsky, Fon CEO and founder.

Fon's partners include BT, MTS Russia, SFR France, SoftBank Japan and ZON Portugal.
