The cost of Buying one and which one to Buy are a different question, for later.

I have BT Broadband and one of their fancy wireless Routers.

What else would I need and what are the likely running costs

If you do a search for wireless networks from your mobile device you'll see lots of BT FON networks - these are BT Home Hubs & Business Hubs. You can connect to these FOC if you have a BT Broadband connection at home.

I can assure you I am constantly searching for wireless networks from my mobile device ( a Galaxy Note, previously a Galaxy S1) and the only one I have ever found is my next door neighbour, not a lot of use!

Have you tried this? - Fon Network

Unfortunately you need to be able to access the Net to be able to download and use "The Fon Network" site, which makes it more or less useless if you are looking for one!

As I said in my first post, of course you can log on and go looking for them, but that is not the idea!

What is the approximate range of one of these Fon Sites?
