Be a good neighbor and share your internet!! That is the motto of project otvorenamreza.org.
Basicly it’s subversion of slovenian project - https://wlan-si.net/.
What is it all about?
Mostly shearing the internet and being that one good neighbor. More about this project — > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wlan_slovenija
Why is it important to me?
I used to live in small “town” in “not-so-developed” part of Croatia, there, internet was not a thing that everyone had.
After connecting with some nice guys from Osijek I managed to set-up first version of this mash network in my home town.
First parts of equipment (mostly Tp-link routers - wr740n and wr841n) are already installated on few locations that have some internet access (all around internet throughput is ~ 30mbps).
The map of this network for now looks like this:
People using internet for surfing and reading email, some media coverage on national television (HRT) and commercial (NovaTV), and a great experience in building the network.
Next part of installation is simple: more devices and more people that are willing to share their internet bandwidth.
