The FON Revolution

FON is a neat idea that I’d love to see succeed — creating a grassroots Boingo by sharing WiFi in urban areas — but there are some nagging issues. For starters, there will be immense holes in coverage, which will likely turn out to be not nearly as important as the strong possibility that some party-pooping ISPs will frown on this sharing of the upstream pipe.
