Fon

Auto connect to FON network

The FON network is made up of routers that share their internet access with guests in return for access to other FON access points. This app authenticates with a username and password using WISPr and supports routers managed by FON and partners.

Based on the no longer maintained FON Access.

Features:

  • Free Wi-Fi access for members of Fon and its partners
  • Automatically connect to the Fon network whenever a Fon Wi-Fi hotspot is detected
  • Test the speed of the network you are connected to.
  • Save hotspots areas for offline navigation
  • Check your usage statistics
  • Choose to be alerted so you know when you are logged in
