I use it here in UK and abroad.You get about a 512 kb connection here in UK.So if its just for email and surfing it's ok.The more people using same spot speed will drop

I've been looking at these, a few questions I've considered;
How close to the hotspot do you need to be?
Presumably these are in peoples houses?
If you sign up and have one in your home is your own connection given priority or will it slow down?
Are there any businesses, hotel chain etc using this?

Any advice gratefully received.

From the brief look into it I've had:

1) Usual proximity for normal wifi use.
2) Yes, Home Hubs on BT broadband.
3) The HH's owner's local traffic is given priority
4) no idea

I ran a wireless channel interference test after downloading a programme off the net and found that I was a Fon member without my knowledge. I have ended my membership twice now and yet I am still broadcasting a hotspot on my meagre 500k broadband connection.
