    It looks like the only way in now is either as a BT customer or an expensive pay by day/week/month customer
    Cant you buy the Fon Box anymore ??

    I thought the FON system was only available if you had a broadband package at home

    That is for BT anyway, are FON's not just BT?

    It is nowadays David, I bought one of the last Fon routers before they stopped selling them.Best £30 ever :) I believe you can still buy the for router on eBay.com or occasionally on eBay uk but don't know if they work. My neighbour has my Fon router plugged in and I then am able to use my boost and connect to a nearby btfon.

    Its somehow a better connection than connecting to my neighbour who is on talk talk.
