Who is the totally unexpected Fonero country of the last days? North Korea!!!

SORRY after posting this I did more research as I found this information hard to believe and discovered, thanks to Jin Ho Hur´s help, that actually many South Korean Foneros where wrongly choosing North Korea as a country choice!!! We actually have no foneros in North Korea…as expected.

In any case the rest of the post still has interesting information as to where foneros are around the world.

Only yesterday we got 11 more registered foneros in North Korea and we have over 250 now. Now what I found WEIRD is that North Korea is a country that is supposed to be totally cut off from the outside world. But I guess they are not. Indeed the FON movement is growing nicely there, at a rate of 5% the rate of South Korea. And how does the Fon proposition work in North Korea, share wifi at home and roam the world for free? Can the North Koreans travel? What shocks me however is the disconnect that seems to exist with the Muslim world. Here´s a list of the top 30 fonero countries and there´s not a single Muslim country. What is going on here?
