We are excited to join the Electronic Frontier Foundation and other open-minded organizations in the Open Wireless Movement. We have long believed that there should be many and low-cost options to get access to the Internet. Individuals and organizations sharing their WiFi networks with their neighbors can be one such option. The Open Wireless Movement shows how do that safely and legally.
The Internet Archive has offered free open outdoor unrestricted WiFi since 1998 using 3 generations of equipment. Currently we serve users in San Francisco libraries and about 5,000 families in housing projects as well as our neighbors in Richmond, California and San Francisco.
Fast and Free.
