His third business, Viatel Ltd., was founded in 1991 and still runs successfully today.
Martin's current venture is FON, founded in November in 2005, which is a community-empowered company dedicated to building the world's largest global WiFi network bottom up, spreading the power of WiFi around the world, aiming to create one million hot spots by 2010.
