Fon to sell Wi-Fi hotspots via Windows 10

Tuesday 8 November 2016 | 13:48 CET | News
Wi-Fi network Fon has announced an agreement with Microsoft to give Windows 10 users the ability to purchase Wi-Fi passes via the Windows Store. In a statement Fon said the agreement means Windows 10 users who are not already entitled to free access as members of the Fon Community will be able to get one-click paid access by means of their Windows Store credentials. The roll out has already started and will gradually be extended throughout the Fon network, which currently stands at over 20 million hotspots.
