How does BT Openzone relate to BT FON?

BT Total Broadband customers who are members of BT FON can use their Wi-Fi minutes to access BT Openzone hotspots as well as BT FON hotspots.

Do I have to be a BT Total Broadband customer to join BT FON?

If you are not a BT Total Broadband customer, you can access the BT FON network by buying a BT Openzone voucher at www.btopenzone.com/buy

Can BT FONero's use BT FON abroad?

Yes you can connect to broadband at any FON hotspot around the world – anywhere that you see the "FON" Wi-Fi signal. Go to www.bt.com/btfon to see hotspot maps of the world.

But why is this a one way deal and why can't normal FON users use the BT FON & BT OpenZone networks ?

BT FON Wi-Fi now lets you roam for free and make money at home !

Previously you had to chose between free worldwide wi-fi roaming or making money but NOW you can do BOTH !

Roam for free and make money with your WiFi !

Make money

Foneros can now both connect for free and make a little money by participating in the FON Community. It’s easy. Every time a visitor (non-Fonero) detects your WiFi signal there’s a good chance you can make a bit of “dinero”.
