FON drops La Fontenna for long-range shared Wi-Fi

updated 08:55 am EDT, Fri June 22, 2007

FON La Fontenna

Communal Internet provider FON this morning released La Fontenna, a unique external antenna made just with the company's La Fonera Wi-Fi router in mind. The directional antenna plugs into the back and can boost the signal strength between three to five times in a particular facing and helps either draw in more potential customers for the public side of the access point or covers weak spots for private use. A three-meter cable lets the antenna fit around corners or otherwise sit in the best place for coverage.

La Fontenna is already in stock through the company's online store and sells for $20 by itself. To encourage new users, however, the company sells a combination of the Fonera router and the Fontenna for $22 that provides the extended wireless range out of the box.
