Many people tell me that all is well with Fon until WiMax kills WiFi and then we will become obsolete. I think these critics don´t get it. WiMax comes in two flavors, proprietary bandwidth and public bandwidth. Fon is prepared for both. If it comes in open mode Fon is already in conversation with our Fonera supplier Accton to make routers that connect to DSL or Cable and send both WiFi and WiMax signal so we can give those out to Foneros and quickly deploy open WiMax. Also a WiMax enabled fonero will have so much more range! And if it comes in propietary flavor Fon will show operators that there´s a new way to grow a network, that living rooms can be more efficient than rooftops.
