Time Warner and FON create home-made Wi-Fi hotspots

Time Warner and FON

Time Warner and Spain's FON today announced one of the first ever deals in the US to officially sanction sharing home Internet access. Subscribers to the Internet services on Time Warner's cable network, including Road Runner and similar services, now have explicit permission to use FON's La Fonera Wi-Fi router with their home connections -- letting anyone resell their own Internet access to neighbors while keeping their private network safe.

As with other FON routers, the service lets any owner of the $5 La Fonera device connect to other hotspots for free, including the 60,000 present within the US; non-members can connect to a hotspot for $3 per day.
