Wi-Fi sharing company wins Skype, Google as backers
A wireless communications start-up in Spain that is partly a grass-roots
social movement seeking to encourage users to share Internet access with
their neighbors is set to announce on Monday $21.7 million in funding
from big name backers, such as Skype Technologies and Google.
FON is a global community of people who share WiFi connections...
These are the kinds of things that WISPA should be working on, IMO.
Creating an alternate network to the ILECs is something WISPs and CLECs
should have been working on the last couple of years. Imagine if every
chance possible all traffic - data, internet, voice, VoIP - went on a
private network instead of the BOC network??? (For one, I would be out
of business, but the BOCs would be reeling from the economic effect).
