What you'll need
To get FREE access to MWEB-approved WiFi hotspots, you need to be an MWEB ADSL customer, with an installed Fon-enabled router. MWEB WiFi is available through two options:
As an MWEB ADSL customer with a Fon-enabled router, you can use your home connection out of home and get FREE WiFi at a range of MWEB-approved WiFi hotspots, including 17 million international Fon hotspots and 25 000 local Fon hotspots.
What is Fon?
Fon runs off Fon-enabled WiFi Routers, turning homes into hotspots and allowing users to get a FREE WiFi at millions of Fon hotspots worldwide. The MWEB WiFi routers are Fon-enabled.
MWEB Fon and qualifying existing MWEB customers can access FREE WiFi at over 2 000 VAST hotspots. In addition to the FREE WiFi, customers will also be able to top-up or purchase additional WiFi bundles at any of the VAST hotspots.
What is VAST?
As Africa's first open access WiFi provider, VAST aims to get customers connected, as seamlessly as possible. MWEB has partnered with VAST to enable you to use your WiFi data at any VAST hotpots.
Non-MWEB customers can also purchase MWEB WiFi access to VAST hotspots.
MWEB customers, who are not MWEB Fon customers and do not have an MWEB Fon router, get 300MB of FREE WiFi access to local VAST hotspots.
