How do you connect to the MWEB Fon network in South Africa?

Get affordable internet access

We make it easy and affordable for you to connect so you can experience the benefits of our global WiFi network:


  • Download our Fon WiFi app and subscribe. You’ll be able to auto connect to your nearest hotspot.
  • Or get an access pass directly at any “@MWEB Fon” hotspot. Just look for the signal and when you connect you’ll be able to purchase your access pass.

Subscribe with MWEB

MWEB is our partner in South Africa. If you’re not a MWEB ADSL customer yet, subscribe now so you can activate Fon!


When you subscribe to MWEB ADSL, you receive a Fon-enabled router. After that, you can connect through the Fon for Members app or on WiFi captive portals that will pop up when you click on your browser after selecting any “@MWEB Fon” signal. You will have access to all “@MWEB Fon” hotspots in South Africa and to Fon’s global WiFi network. When abroad, connect to our hotspots and avoid international data roaming charges by using Fon WiFi.


How it works

Fon divides your WiFi signal allowing you to share with other Fon members. The shared portion of your bandwidth is separate from your private network so that you will still be able to enjoy the same internet connection speed and security as before while receiving access to our global WiFi community.

“Using WiFi is how I avoid extra data charges. Fon WiFi makes it so easy by auto-connecting me to hotspots at home and when I travel.”
