    I know some funsters do knock BT…:Doh:
    But customers with a wifi booster from Motorhome wifi ..
    (http://www.motorhomewifi.com/ )…using… Bt openzone in the uk will have excellent results …but not only in the UK… but other countries.
    So this may be of interest to just a few MHF funster’s that are BT customers, that are motor homing in Portugal , Algarve, (and other countries)….look out for the Fon wifi signal, click to connect, then scroll down the page till you see the BT link…..enter your password
    BT open zone /which is linked to FON….. http://www.btfon.com/maps
    while we was parked at Albufeira camp site, the internet was disconnected for 24 hours until the new system was connected…..two BT customers was connected to FON with an excellent signal in fact as good as the site wifi
    So if you are members of FON or BT don’t forget your password ……………………….

    I have just been looking at the FON website
    I am with O2 for my broadband ect, cheep but not good for wifi when away

    If I buy a FON simple does this mean I can connect to BT/Fon wifi hotspots, as I have picked up loads of these on my travels but no been able to connect as I am not with BT

    Thanks

    Also if you have a iPhone you can download the BT Smartphone app that allows you to connect to the BT Fon network in any country and use it to call any UK number at the same rate as if you were at home in UK. You will need your BT user name and password to access this. This is a new service that BT has started and you can "google" it for more details.

    There is a special MAP that just deals with FON hotspots for Portugal, as the provider is Zon. These are all duplicated on the BT FON map - but just in case you are interested:

    http://www.zon.pt/net/wifi-gratis/Pages/Mapas-ZON@Fon.aspx

    The hotspots will be named 'Zon-with-Fon' (or 'ZON@FON') and you can log on using either your BT Broadband or FON login credentials :)

    More information fon FON about what to expect when logging in here: https://fon.zendesk.com/entries/21514286-how-to-connect-in-portugal

    We have some customers in the Algarve at the moment who have been making good use of FON. :thumb:
