FON wifi technology for Africa

Ethan Zuckerman points to FON and wifi sharing possibilities in Africa.….”What’s cool about this, for folks in the developed world, is that FON has an excellent chance of growing organically, user by user, rather than through the conventional way Wireless ISPs have tried to grow. I find it easy to believe, based on growth so far, that I may be able to expect to find a FON access point in major cities around the world in the next couple of years.”
