La Fonera from free to €29 October 29, 2006
After having received 6000 orders in Germany and Austria, the free, promised-based distribution of La Fonera routers ends next week Friday at midnight. In all other parts of the world prices will be raised from €5/ $5 to €29/ $29.95 respectively.
According to Martin Varsavsky, FON has reached its goal to get more routers out in Germany than T-Mobil has hotspots (which would be 4500). The first 1000 of these 6000 routers have already been shipped.
