Fon is our global Wi-Fi partner that connects Telstra Air customers to Wi-Fi data at millions of hotspots overseas.
 

Before your leave, ensure you:

  1. Confirm Fon is available at your destination
  2. Download the Telstra Air® App and log in with your Telstra ID to create your Telstra Air account.


Accessing Fon hotspots overseas with the Telstra Air App

Android

When you reach your destination, the Telstra Air app will notify you and automatically connect you to Fon hotspots when you’re in range. Connecting to Wi-Fi could take a minute or two.

Apple iOS

  1. To connect to a Fon hotspot overseas, go to your device settings and make sure your Wi-Fi is turned on. The Telstra Air app will only pick up Fon hotspots when your Wi-Fi is on
  2. Look for a Fon partner in your Wi-Fi list. Fon partner networks usually have “‘Fon’” in the name and “Telstra Air” should appear underneath it
  3. Fon partners in each country have their own Wi-Fi network names. Each time you enter a new country you’ll need to manually connect to a Fon Wi-Fi network. Once you’ve done this, you’ll then automatically connect to other Fon Wi-Fi networks in the same country.


Wi-Fi network names Fon in partnering countries

The below table lists the name of the network you’ll need to connect to in each Fon partnering country.

For example: in the UK, you’ll need to connect to the network “BTWiFi-with-FON” and in Germany you’ll need to connect to "Telekom_FON".

If you’re travelling to multiple countries, you’ll only need to connect once to each Wi-Fi network in each country.
