Whisher are another new player in the global wi-fi sharing thing. It’s simple, you join up, share your network, and you get to use other people’s shared networks wherever you are. It’s not a new idea and there’s a few more established people out there.
These guys seem to have a nice interface and tone of voice though. I particularly liked this from their FAQ:
Whisher? haven’t you guys spelt it wrong?
Not really. We thought it would be cool that word processors would underline us in red.
You can add it to your word processorâ€™s dictionary if it really annoys you, but we are not changing the name :)
Just a bit cute. And sometimes a little bit of cute makes a big bit of difference.
It looks like Fon is the biggest player in the space right now – but I think you need a specific router to use it. They’re cute too. They have different types of member, Linuses, Bills and Aliens.
