    So why would you waste time jumping on the insecure FON bandwagon when the secure Tomizone bandwagon is similar but has been doing this “new” model for over two years – with D-Link hardware too! Soccer Moms might find it easier to use than FON

    Primarily because FON is much more recognized in the United States. Tomizone is much more used in countries like New Zealand. However, I wouldn’t call FON insecure. They auto-update their devices, just like any good Wi-Fi network… and are using OpenWRT, which has more than proven itself.

    When I said that I “wouldn’t trust” FON with being my primary router, I was referring to my usage needs. I need an enterprise-grade router at home to handle my traffic. Also, I want to have full control over my own router.

    My advice to Tomizone would be to establish business partners in the United States that can better evangelize the platform. After all, FON has Google on their side… Tomizone doesn’t even have a U.S. retail partner.
