Flickr is user generated content. Youtube is user generated content. Del.icio.us is user generated content. What is Fon? We are user generated infrastructure! Foneros buy our social routers for 25 dollars or euros or the very techie ones download our firmware and join the largest WiFi community in the world and make it larger.
Youtube is to CBS what Fon is to T Mobile. We are like “Vodafone” built by the people who turn a normally stand alone product, a wifi router into a social product and use it as the building block of a true broadband global wireless network that is free to them wherever they are. Moreover, we work over a frequency, WiFi, which is favored over 3G by makers of games (PSP, DS), laptops, PDAs, digital cameras and now iPod like players with WiFi.
