I use BT Broadband, and signed up yesterday for BTFON:
BT | FON
It basically means that I can get free Wi-Fi access via any BT Broadband customer's router, if it is in range, provided that they are also on the scheme. In return, I have to give away some of my bandwidth to anyone within range who wants to piggy-back off my router. Non-BT users can pay to use the system.
When I tried it just now, my access had been authorised, and I was able to log on and try it. I was able to find my own hotspot on the BTFON map, and there are several others in my neighborhood.
I'll go for a walk later with my Streak and see how I get on, using other people's routers.
