AT&T signs international Wi-Fi network sharing deal with Fon
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294712==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/10/42.million.people.covered.by.700.mhz.band.b.purcha se/" rel='nofollow'>AT&T</a> has made an agreement with Wi-Fi hotspot network <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294713==http://corp.fon.com/" rel='nofollow'>Fon</a> to provide each others customers with overseas Wi-Fi. Customers of Fon will be able to use AT&T's 30,000-location Wi-Fi hotspot network at various stores and businesses in the United States, while AT&T customers can use Fon's international network of close to 12 million hotspots. <br />
<br />
The deal covers smartphones, tablets, and other Wi-Fi devices, with connections triggered by the AT&T Wi-Fi International app for iOS and Android. AT&T customers using either the 300MB or 800MB <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294711==http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/plans/international-dataplans.html#fbid=yXZX-GGLkHt" rel='nofollow'>Data Global Add-Ons</a>, priced at $60 and $120 per month respectively, will receive 1GB of international Wi-Fi per month, though it is not clear if access will be stopped once the limit is reached or if there will be an extra charge for more international Wi-Fi access. <br />
<br />
"Our agreement with Fon further expands our international Wi-Fi footprint making it easier for AT&T customers to stay connected to what matters most during their travels abroad," said JR Wilson, vice president of partnerships and alliances at AT&T.
