KPN partners with Fon to expand Wi-Fi network
Wednesday 23 January 2013

Dutch operator KPN has partnered with Fon to roll out a network of Wi-Fi hotspots based on its customers' home broadband routers. The Wi-Fi routers of KPN subscribers will send out a second Wi-Fi signal, available for other KPN customers and Fon users. In return, KPN customers will have access to Fon's international network of almost 8 million hotspots.

KPN already has a network of 1,500 public hotspots, a number set to strongly increase with the new plan, the operator said. The Fon network will be tested over the next six months and launched at the end of this year. KPN's plan to expand Wi-Fi access follows a similar plan from rival Ziggo, which started testing in the city of Groningen last year a service opening up customer routers for Wi-Fi sharing.
