Are you a "Fonero"? If so, this utility might becomes handy for you as well. The German company Spotigo has signed an licensing agreement for its technically leading Wi-Fi Smart Client. The Spain based company FON - the largest Wi-Fi Community in the world (as FON says about FON) - will be using the Spotigo technology to substantially improve the way its Community members and customers can access its Wi-Fi Community. Spotigo's technology will be provided by FON under the name of the "FON Wi-Fi Connection Manager" and distributed to all of its users and Community members around the world.

The FON founder and CEO Martin Varsavsky states:" With this Connection Manager FONs users will be able to detect and connect to FON Access Points, Fonspots, automatically. Simply staying or passing within an area that has coverage of a Fonspot will be enough to automatically get a mobile broadband connection established. We have chosen Spotigo as a partner in this project because of their deep technical know-how and comprehensive Wi-Fi related product experience."

Daniel Prümers, Managing Director Marketing & Sales and co-founder of Spotigo explains: "Spotigo develops excellent Wi-Fi products and we see this confirmed by the fact that the largest Wi-Fi Community of the world has chosen us as their provider."

Spotigo is providing its technology to FON for use with Microsoft Windows devices and Symbian Smartphones. Further releases for other platforms are currently in development.

Cheers ~ Arne
