Butterfly Wi-Fi was intended to be used for wireless devices and LANs (Local Area Network) like in offices or homes, but is now often used for Internet access. It enables a person with a wireless-enabled computer or personal digital assistant (PDA) to connect to the Internet when in proximity of an access point called a hotspot.
KDN is now setting up mobile internet/networking products that end users with Wi-Fi enabled computers and PDAs to link to ISPs and other service providers or to their offices in a more or less transparent way to take advantage of the systems. KDN markets this under the Brand name Butterfly Freedom

Butterfly® VOIP services convert your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Butterfly Wi-Fi network. VoIP allows one to make a call directly from a computer, a special VoIP phone, or a traditional phone connected to a special adapter. In addition, wireless “hot spots” in locations such as airports, parks, and cafes allow you to connect to the Internet and may enable you to use VoIP service wirelessly. VoIP enable clients get digital quality communication while at the same time help companies save costs associated with the normal telephony.
To use this service, register your Softphone on your PDA or Laptop with the KDN 5 Million number and TALK within the butterfly network begins….
