If you had posted this 3 weeks ago I would have agreed with you but something has changed in the last 3 weeks and now not only can I find more Fon/openzone connections I can actually connect to them with no problem. so much so my HTC is constantly 'pinging' that it has another connection as I walk along the street.
I am not in London but there are other post confiming better connections
