Joining BT FON? will this slow my home WiFi?

If I activate BT Fon Hotspot around my residence by selecting to opt through my BT internet address on my BT Broadband Router (Home Hub 3) to activate BT FON hot spot, will it slow down my Home WiFi net work?

 

 

What is the benifit in activating BT Fon Hot sopt by allowing my BT Home Hub 3 to create a bandwith of my broadband?

 

regards

Activating BT Fon will have an affect on your bandwidth but it should be only slightly, having said that, I noticed that my hub became unreliable in terms of connection and therefor opted out again. This restored reliability.
Going back to bandwidth, yes it will affect it.
