Vodafone Spain is set to phase out the community-based Wi-Fi service it used to alleviate congested mobile networks, reports website Xataka Movil. The company inherited thousands of hot spots after acquiring Ono in 2014 and offered the Wi-Fi offload service as part of its Vodafone One convergent offers launched in April 2015. Although existing customers who have activated the service will for now be allowed to continue using it, Vodafone Wi-Fi will no longer be included in the operator's convergent plans starting from 03 October.
