Crowdsourced internet provider Fon offers easy and affordable web access with its Community Wi-Fi service. In addition to setting up 'Fon Spots' -- Wi-Fi hotspots set up across cities like Paris, Amsterdam and Tokyo -- the company allows users to purchase an internet access pass that helps them stay connected anywhere and anytime.

While residential and mobile data plans can feature expensive fees and less than fast internet access, Fon's crowdsourced internet service ensures speed and efficiency. The service cuts user costs and is ideal for frequent travelers. In addition to providing global Internet access for those on the go, Fon also lets users book Wi-Fi access in advance when travelling to France and the United Kingdom.
