Three’s Company! BT & Fon Launch Pay with Amazon

Almost 9 years ago, Fon and telecom giant BT joined forces with the goal of providing customers with global WiFi access. It’s safe to say that we have achieved that goal – BT customers are now able to roam freely with around 5.5 million hotspots across the UK and over 18 million worldwide.

Today, we are proud to announce a new way to connect users by welcoming a new name to the partnership: Pay with Amazon. Customers can now purchase our WiFi access passes through their existing Amazon account. This new payment method comes with some really cool benefits:

  1. Connectivity: Get hooked up to speedy WiFi access all across the country
  2. Convenience: No need to whip out the credit card – just log in with your Amazon account for seamless payment
  3. Security: Shop safely with a brand you already know and trust
  4. Accessibility: Both iOS and Android users can choose this payment option regardless of the device that they are using, from mobile to desktop


So, how does it work? 

During the payment process, customers will now recognize the “Pay with Amazon” icon as an option. When prompted, customers will simply log in with their Amazon credentials to complete the transaction. Voilà! Once completed, users will have hotspot access.
