Google, Skype and some venture capitalists announced this Sunday to have invested 22 Million dollars into the WiFi startup FON. FON allows (just like LinSpot) that people share their Internet connection to other users. FON runs on the LinkSys router itself, just as our upcoming LinSpot On-Site product. FON currently doesn't allow people to sell their connection, but they have plans to do so as well. It's great to see that our idea catches on and is supported by these large and interesting players. It surely will be an interesting year for us!
