Well let's ask and see, I posted the following question to
I have a broadband Internet connection in my home and I would like to
share it with the general public using a normal residential wi-fi
router. I will be using the fon service to to do this, please see the
link for details - http://en.fon.com/
I understand from reading your website if I provide a public service
like this I am obliged to register with comreg. I have established from
my ISP that this does not contravene their terms and conditions but
would like to be sure I am acting under regulations. Can you please
clarify this for me.
