It is now possible for even small groups of people to build telecommunications networks that can provide coverage across large areas using wireless technologies. This has created new opportunities for communities to access and share information in ways that have not been available in the past.
Groups of like-minded people are putting their heads and hands to work, to create real low-cost broadband alternatives which empower their local community to share localised information such as websites, email, voice, video, internet and many other forms of IP communications.
