You don´t need to understand Japanese to see that La Fonera is the the third best networking product in Amazon Japan. Having Spanish as my native language I just love to see that they still keep the “La” Fonera. Fon is the only technology company from a Spain or any other Spanish speaking country that has managed to have its products sold in Japan. Sorry for the promotional tone of this blog post but if anything it is only inspired by pride in the people who work at Fon and their abilities.

That’s really amazing taking into account that La Fonera is one of the few wireless devices that you cannot use with Nintendo DS.

That’s really amazing given the fact that other Spanish technological companies have been present in the Japanese market from 50 years.

Hi Martin,
Congratulations for Fon’s success in the japanese market, which is a significant accomplishment for a non-Japanese high-tech company.
Another Spanish technology company which is getting traction in the home networking market Japan is DS2, which designs semiconductors for broadband communications over electric wiring (powerline networking).
Buffalo, the leading vendor of networking equipment in the consumer market in Japan sells “powerline networking adapters” based on DS2’s silicon:
