I don’t know too many details about FON, but we have an ISP in Portugal that provides FON over all their clients (if they accept) and as soon as I connect to one FON hotstpot, the device automatically connects to any other. No idea if it’s just because it’s the same name, or if there is any other value that is forced to be the same, but somehow it is possible.
