Romania : FON teams with ROMTELECOM in ROMANIA

July 4, 2014

Telecom provider Romtelecom, part of Deutsche Telekom s OTE, has introduced the Fon global public WiFi network in Romania, which enables Romtelecom s customers free internet access via 13 million access points from around the globe.

The Fon option, which can be activated upon request also for the company s current clients, is accessible for Romtelecom subscribers who have a Huawei HG 658 router, which enables sharing the access to their own WiFi connection from home.

This is an accessible alternative available to all the company s customers who need online access in their travels around the country or abroad. In other words, a customer who shares his own Internet connection from home will have, in his turn, access to the fixed Internet provided by others within the Fon community , said Mathias Hannel, Chief Commercial Officer Residential Segment Romtelecom and Cosmote Romania.

Access credentials are available to customers in each subscriber s MyAccount, after he gives consent to open the access to their connection. The Internet in the Fon network can be accessed with any device connected through WiFi to FonSpot, by opening a browser and entering the authentication personal data. The smartphone or tablet users can also use the free Fon application available in the AppStore and Google Play. The app enables automatic connection to the nearest FonSpot available.
