In June this year, I announced our partnership with Belgacom, the largest telco in Belgium. Now, I am happy to announce that only 5 months later, the Belgacom network is up-and-running, with 100,000 hotspots projected before the end of the year. But it doesn’t stop there – before the end of next year, the Belgacom Fon network will have half a million hotspots, solidifying it as Belgium’s largest WiFi network.While this year has been full of news, including our first partnership in Latin America with Oi from Brazil, we’re still not done.

As demand for WiFi continues to grow, we are continuing to grow our network with the help of our community and partners, in fact, we’re having conversations with telcos all around the world.

Other than giving customers the benefit of being part of the world’s largest WiFi community, there are important benefits for telcos when they partner with Fon. The main one is offloading significant mobile traffic through WiFi. This is becoming increasingly important as the number of internet enabled devices is driving an important (and growing) portion of internet traffic. This is why at Fon we are proud of having the largest WiFi network in the world, with over 4.5 million hotspots. With the help of partners like Belgacom, we can grow even more, helping people stay connected regardless of their location.
