How do I get access to MWEB WiFi?
MWEB WiFi is available through 2 options.
As an MWEB ADSL customer, with a Fon–enabled router, you can use your home connection out of home and get Uncapped WiFi* in a range of MWEB Approved WiFi hotspots, including
- 13 million Fon hotspots worldwide
- 25 000 local Fon hotspots
- MWEB Approved WiFi hotspots
With a Fon-enabled router, you are able to enjoy Uncapped WiFi* in these hotspots.
Using your in home connection, out of home
ADSL at home is great – it offers a great experience and is reliable. MWEB now gives you the opportunity to further use your in home ADSL connection out of home, by connecting to MWEB WiFi hotspots when you are out of home.
The MWEB WiFi router is Fon-enabled, meaning that it has 2 separate networks, one private just for you and one shared for other Fon network members.
This allows you to safely share a portion of WiFi with others and in return, they share their WiFi with you. All these WiFi hotspots together create a crowd-sourced WiFi network where everyone who contributes, connects.
Is it secure?
Yes. The signal is separated into 2 networks, one private and one public. Your home network is separated from the guest network by a firewall. Your home network is completely password protected, and so not accessible by anyone that doesn't have your password.
Does sharing a signal slow down my internet at home?
No, the private network will always be prioritized. So whether one or twenty people are connecting to your public network, your internet experience will not be affected.
Will the usage on my shared connection count towards my Capped or Uncapped thresholds?
No, the shared usage is separate from your personal usage.
How do I connect locally?
If you are an MWEB ADSL customer, with a Fon-enabled router, you have access to your ADSL home connection, as well as WiFi* in 2 different WiFi network areas.
