BT Fon

Anybody else signed up for this

Is it as completely safe as they say it is?

yes it is completely safe, but if you want other people sucking up your bandwidth then go ahead, let me know where you live so i can use it as well please.

You will get free access to any of the 250.000 BTFON hotspots in the world by sharing your Broadband connection with no impact on your home service or security
My bold - I would be very interested to see how they manage that. Of course it will impact on your home service and I cant see how there is any way around it (admittedly, im no expert).

You have a connection of X bandwidth, that bandwidth is shared amongst those connected to it, more people connected = less bandwidth per user = slower connection for everyone. Most of the time the impact may be negligable but there is still an impact.
