Say hello to KT, our new WiFi partner in South Korea!

Say hello to KT, our new WiFi partner in South Korea!

Traveling to Korea? Fon’s got you covered! We’re happy to announce today that we’ve just signed a WiFi agreement with KT, the leading South Korean telco.

Starting today, Fon members who visit the country will gain free access to KT’s WiFi network, including popular hotels, restaurants, bookstores and cafes throughout South Korea. Go there and look for the Fon WiFi signal. You will see that the coverage is amazing! In return, select KT customers will also get free access to our 13-million hotspot network!

This is our first step in a joint plan to expand our WiFi network in Korea, one of the most technologically-advanced countries in the world. The goal is to expand the partnership to the entire KT customer base and provide the best WiFi experience in South Korea in the known Fon manner.

This adds to our already extensive Fon WiFi network in South Korea, which will be the country with the second best Fon coverage in Asia after Japan – where we already have enjoyed a dense Fon coverage for a long time. And, don’t forget Australia! As you know only last week we announced our partnership with Telstra Australia. Amazing Fon coverage awaits us in Australia in less than 12 months. Seems like our footprint in that part of the world is growing … well, it is! Expect more to come.
