Martin Varsavsky writes about his experience launching FON, a network for wi-fi users and AP owners that allows them to share their bandwidth. Check Technorati, he’s gotten great coverage on Spanish-language websites. Martin is a great telecomms engineer and I think this is going to be something really big.
Yes I did read it here. When I was scanning through my feedreader I saw the heading, and tbh, I actually thought it was about freeworlddialup.com.
I know FWD and FON have two different letters, but, well it was a quick scan.
BUT! To be fair to me, I did mention I read it here, on this post:
http://www.runningwithbulls.com/blog/2005/10/22/fones-spanish-isp-wants-its-customers-to-share-wifi/ saying: “Actually now that as I write this, I remember reading this on Antoin’s eire.com site, about Martin Varsavsky. ”
So, I am vindicated!
Please forgive me 😉
About selling Eircom to Swisscom, well I guess it might not be of any intereset to have a company with 0 debt buying Eircom.
But at least it would make those boys €€CASH€€.
About it not making any difference to the customers…well if the parent company had a different philosophy to Eircom’s “don’t share philosophy” well that *might* permeate though to Eircom.
One can but wish and hope.
FON is a Tarrific idé Martin!!
