City Library of Izegem is first public FON spot in Europe

I read this nice news on the FON newsletter. Seems Belgium isn’t that behind after all. Now let’s hope Leuven follows suit, so that we can alle enjoy free Wifi in the library.



FONTSATIC FONSPOTSThe City Library of Izegem in Belgium is our first FONtastic public library in Europe. The library’s visitors can bring their laptops, surf the net and send emails for free. The FON WiFi signal covers the library’s lobby, Reading Room, Meeting Room and Exhibit Hall.

“Since we added FON WiFi, our visitors no longer need to wait to use one of the few available computers we keep for accessing the internet. They can bring along their own laptops and save online research directly onto their computers. We’re also doing something innovative and are the first public place in Izegem to offer free wireless internet access. FON WiFi makes using our facilities so much more comfortable and an even more ideal place to work and study for everyone!”
