When it comes to British Telecoms, you know it’s going to be something big. The telecoms company closed a deal with the Spanish WiFi network Fon to allow BT users to share their broadband access and BT Fusion users (the WiFi/GSM dual-mode service) to make VoIP phone calls via Fon members’ hotspots.

With this partnership, Fon is gaining more grandeur and authority as a WiFi network. The deal will grant Fon the access to up to 100,000 customers, reports Reuters. A rather small user base compared to the other big deal the company made in France with Neuf-Cegetel, the second biggest ISP in France with over 1.2 million broadband users.
