Έχω μιλήσει πολλές φορές για το FON, ένα εναλλακτικό δίκτυο WiFi με ένα πολύ ενδιαφέρον business model.
Most universities in developed countries have wifi, but few have wifi that is open to all. Fon wants to change this. Fon has a new proposal for universities and is this one: we will give universities as many routers as they need to provide good coverage on campus and will administer over the web free user to all university students and professors. Moreover, Fon will provide free global wifi roaming to these students and professors. In exchange universities will agree that all of those who are not students or professors, but detect the Fon signal, will pay 2 dollars or euros per 24 hours of usage. In this way, wifi access that is not free -but very affordable- is provided to anyone who is nearby or a guest at the university and is not a fonero.
Κάποιος από ελληνικά Πανεπιστήμια που να θέλει να ψάξει το θέμα;
