This morning I was looking at the latest registered fonero numbers. Foneros are people who sign up with Fon and would like to share bandwidth. If they want to do this for money they are Bill foneros, if they want to do this in order to obtain free wifi roaming anywhere else in their country or the world where there are foneros they are called Linus foneros. Now as you can see from this list Fon is becoming a very global company, ¿or is it? Considering that Muslims make one person in 5 in this planet, how come we already have foneros from so many countries and none from Muslim countries?

Top 30 by number of registered Foneros.

Spain – 5217 registered users

United States – 5102 registered users

France – 1885 registered users

United Kingdom – 886 registered users

Italy – 821 registered users

Germany – 779 registered users

Netherlands – 669 registered users

Argentina – 419 registered users

Sweden – 343 registered users

Canada – 332 registered users

Belgium – 229 registered users

Switzerland – 224 registered users

Portugal – 174 registered users

Mexico – 167 registered users

Chile – 151 registered users

Brazil – 140 registered users

Ireland – 130 registered users

Denmark – 108 registered users

Norway – 108 registered users

Australia – 95 registered users

Austria – 93 registered users

Israel – 91 registered users

China – 77 registered users

Poland – 70 registered users

Finland – 64 registered users

India – 61 registered users

Colombia – 54 registered users

Estonia – 52 registered users

Venezuela – 40 registered users

Hungary – 40 registered users

Fon has not spent any money in advertising so far. It´s been only word of mouth. Still that not a single Muslim country would appear in this list worries me. I wonder what we could do to get our message to those countries.
