the internet is broken...

and you can fix it with us

We are an all-volunteer organization building the People's Open Network, a community-owned and operated non-profit internet infrastructure in Oakland.

Imagine a free internet...

Imagine if the wifi router in your home connected to the wifi routers in your neighbour’s homes and they again connected to their neighbours to form a huge free wireless network spanning the city!

That's exactly what a mesh network is, or at least what it can be. Roads and telephone poles are owned government or private interests and laying down cable is expensive but by using wireless signals that hop from building to building we can create a community owned and operated free-as-in-freedom alternative to corporate Internet Service Providers!

Community wireless mesh networks are growing around the world, creating local 'internets' that support Net Neutrality and community control of critical infrastructure.
