fon is offering free wireless routers to anyone near a Starbucks or other café type place. They will also split the loot from the customers you skim from the T-Mobile hotspot with your strategically placed router. This violates the terms of service for just about any home broadband provider. Now, violating those terms of service to share your broadband for free doesn’t seem all that bad. But doing it for profit seems like it might end in a lawsuit. Remember when London Terrace Towers was sued for reselling the super’s bandwidth?

If you’re in a real sharing mood, why not just give it away? Join up with nycwireless or similar organization in your area.
