The company confirmed to Inside Facebook that they are 'running a small test with a few local businesses of a Wi-Fi router that is designed to offer a quick and easy way to access free Wi-Fi after checking in on Facebook'.

'When you access Facebook Wi-Fi by checking in, you are directed to your local business's Facebook Page,' the firm said.

According to the report, while businesses would still provide the Internet access, Facebook would provide a router.

Page owners would be able to monitor how many new 'Likes' the page received from those who used the Wi-Fi service, the report said.
