I have subscribed to the Samba which was a "free wifi for watching adverts" service for a while and find today that it has gone bust - see their [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]).
Whilst I don't really need 3G, it was a useful back-up for when I couldn't find a free wifi network such as The Cloud, O2, etc. so I am now looking for a replacement back-up service. I can't justify a monthly subscription as I won't use it enough, at least in the foreseeable future, so was looking to extend my wifi options.
I have come across the self-claimed [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which looks pretty good.
The premise seems to be shared routers, somewhat like BT's system, but for which the only cost is £34.00 for a special fire-walled router to separate private and public traffic.
I would use FON on the move for a 3rd Generation iPad under iOS.7.2 and the router for my home network a quad-core i7 MacOSX.9.n Mavericks iMac, G4 MacOSX.4.11 Tiger eMac and G4 Tiger Tower.
I appreciate that this isn't the same as 3G, but does anyone have experience of it?
How good, bad or indifferent is it? Is there a better solution to my limited needs?
