Whisher (Whisher Technologies LLC) is a company that provides a service of shared wireless networks. The service was unveiled at DEMO 07 and launched in February 2007.
People can become members of Whisher by installing the application. With this application people can share their WiFi at home and get free WiFi access worldwide. The goals of this service bear similarities with services such as FON and Boingo Wireless. The differences with these services is that Whisher relies purely on a software solution for aggregating WiFi access points. The result of this approach is that people don't need to buy specific computer hardware, and the use of Whisher is free of charge. As of September 2008 the application has over 234.000 downloads.
