Telstra brings Fon Wifi service to Australia

29 June 2015 |


Telstra and Fon have begun deploying a Wifi network across Australia.

As of tomorrow, eligible Telstra home broadband customers will be able to access thousands of hotspots across the country.

Telstra customers will also be able to access Fon’s Wifi services worldwide, which covers more than 18 countries including the UK, Spain, Brazil and Japan.

At the same time, international Fon members will be able to access the service in Australia.

 “The network will be brought to life by us and by our customers who can enjoy greater value from their broadband service by accessing their allowance outside the home. We expect it will grow rapidly reaching thousands of neighbourhoods and millions of people across the country over the next five years,” said Karsten Wildberger, Telstra’s group MD of consumer and products.
