Pass & Promocode user in the UK

The Fon network in UK is formed by BTWiFi-with-Fon hotspots. Here is all you need to know so you can connect to our network in the UK as a Fon Visitor.

Fon Visitors can access the network using Fon Passes & Promocodes.

Fon passes are available for purchase and only valid at BTWiFi-with-Fon hotspots. They can't be used on premium BT Wi-fi hotspots, which belong to BT's dedicated network.

Note: Fon passes are also available offline (no need to be connected to a BTWiFi-with-Fon hotspot) through this link. The purchasing process is the same as described below.
