I guess Fingbox is a global product, but curious to see how widespread the usage is.  Feel free to chirp with where you are from.  Kicking it off I am in the UK!

EDIT: Now made a Poll here: https://community.fing.com/discussion/345/where-are-you-from-geographic

    Like @ddaw215, I'm another British transplant, this time originally from Warwickshire, travelled via the 100 Acre Wood to London (it's a long journey and a got sidetracked with a nice red balloon), and now in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    Seems; to be a disproportionate number of Brits on this thread (both local and us ex-pats). So far, 6 Brits (or expats), 1 Canadian but living in the UK and then 3 Americans, Richard from The Netherlands and last (but not least) Paul from New Zealand.

    What is it with that :wink: ?

    So here are our top 10 countries by product.


    You'll see that Fingbox users are quite different in geographic spread to Fing app users. Most of the early invites to this Community have been to Fingbox users - so the mix here, given it's an english-speaking community for now, is not so surprising

    @Gidster amazing!  I only realised about fingbox from the fing app so would have thought they would correlate!  Is your distribution worldwide?

    Good question. There are some countries that are difficult to distribute in and that will certainly skew the numbers, as too will income levels - in a lot of a big app territories, the cost of the device will be prohibitive for many.

    For instance, we're not currently able to sell Fingbox directly in Egypt or Argentina.

    Hi all. I'm in the UK. I discovered fing years ago and found it so useful. When the Fingbox came out I jumped at the opportunity. Fantastic products.

    Really?
    Well, I am from Lima, Perú.  South American country like Argentina, but I was able to get a Fingbox around a year o so ago...
    More expensive than some others devices but, I was really into it, by of the security level it brings to the home network.
    (Now I am curious, Am I the only Peruvian with a Fingbox/here? :D )
    Keep looking up!

    Welcome @Hronos. So far I think it's fair to say that we've not had another Peruvian identify themselves here, so yup, you're probably the first!

    Thank you @Pooh, I guess is more common to be a FingApp user, than a Fingbox owner in my region...
    Maybe @Gidster could tell us more  :p
    Keep looking up!

    @Gidster is currently probably too busy sunning his dreadlocks and downing Ouzo, Raki or Tsipouro in Greece right now :) Meanwhile @VioletChepil is doing a grand job holding down the fort here!
