Fon, manufacturer of Fonera WiFi routers, which broadcast dual signals (one encrypted, one public but reserved for registered Fon users), recently announced that it has sold more that 4 million hotspots worldwide. This is an increase of more than 30%, and up from 3 million hotspots, since the beginning of 2011. “Four million hotspots is an amazing figure and proof that the Fon model works,” said Fon CEO and founder Martin Varsavsky. “Together with the spike we are seeing–one million new hotspots this year alone–the Fon network is achieving the footprint and rapid growth we have dreamed of.” The firm also builds the dual-signal technology directly into its Telco partners’ equipment.
