Some readers have asked me why FON was selling Foneras at the same price (39.95) in US and Europe, even if the exchange rate between dollar and euro is far from being 1. For a while we kept the same price, since there are costs and barriers in Europe that don’t exist in the US. Today, with the euro at 1.45, we decided to adjust the price of our Fonera according to the real value of the currencies.
Starting today, people in Europe will buy the Fonera for 29.95 euros (VAT included) + shipping costs, those in the US will pay 39.95 dollars + shipping costs.
