We have recently joined the worldwide Fon network, by installing a Fon router at the school. We have always offered free (secure) wireless Internet access to our students. The Fon service lets us offer access to the surrounding neighborhood as well, without worrying about security issues. If you already share your Internet access with others through the Fon network, your username and password will let you use our wireless Internet for free. If you are not a Fon member, small hourly charges apply.
