Sharing member in the UK

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

 

1. Sharing members through BT

If you are a BT subscriber with the Fon service enabled on your router:

  • Look to see if a WiFi signal "BTWiFi-with-FON" is in range of your device and if so, connect to it. 
  • Open your web browser and wait for the BT Fon login page to load. If it doesn't, type any web address, i.e. "www.wikipedia.org" into your browser's address bar.
  • Select "BT Broadband" and log in with your username and password:

Once logged in, your session will start. 

Notes:

  • if you have difficulties completing this process, please click here to go to the troubleshooting instructions.
  • in order to avoid logging in manually (each time you want to connect to a Fon Spot), we recommend you to use the Fon for members app.
