The 20th of June is World Wi-Fi Day. Proximus and Fon offer 24 hours of free Wi-Fi access across Belgium

19/06/2017

Proximus together with its partner Fon offer its customers access to over 1,3 million Wi-Fi Hotspots in Belgium and over 20 million worldwide. To celebrate World Wi-Fi Day, everyone is invited to enjoy 24 hours of free Wi-Fi access in Belgium.

The 20th of June is World Wi-Fi Day, an initiative of the Wireless Broadband Alliance to help bridge the digital divide. It aims to raise awareness about the importance of being connected and the essential role that Wi-Fi plays in this connected world. People increasingly want to be connected anytime, anywhere and whenever they want. They want to instantly share music, videos, pictures or information with their friends and family on the internet. However, in some markets, the infrastructure is not yet optimal, making it much more difficult to stay connected.

Proximus and Fon support World Wi-Fi Day and invite everyone to join. Users can get online thanks to a special promo code, and connect to Smart Wi-Fi in Belgium to enjoy one day of free Wi-Fi for everyone.


Alex Puregger, CEO of FON

Together with leading operators around the world, Fon has built the largest WiFi sharing network. But we want to go even further to help users get to WiFi wherever and whenever they need it. World WiFi Day is a perfect day to celebrate connectivity, and we’re delighted to be working with Proximus to offer free WiFi in Belgium.
