FON, the Spanish company that enables consumers to share their WiFi services with each other, is all set to announce yet another round of VC funding--about $13 million, according to a report on GigaOM. Index Ventures, Skype and Google are among the return backers, according to the report, but rumor has it British Telecom may also throw in some cash. FON's previous funding totaled $22 million, bringing its total funding to about $35 million if the report proves true.
