FON: An Anarchic Wireless Network

FON is very interesting.  I wonder whether it uses mesh technologies, or just provides global accounts on hotspots?

    It sounds pretty interesting. Basically, if you have a compatible access point (or go out and buy one) which you re-image with their supplied firmware then that access point can be used by other members of the network for free (and you can use their APs at no charge), plus you can make money on paying users (those who aren’t sharing members of the network). Its a neat idea that can help expand out the number of “free” access points. Problem is that it doesn’t warn people that sharing their APs may violate their service agreement with their ISP.
