Freifunk - Free and Open Wireless Community Networks

Talk by andre

Sunday from 5:20 PM - 5:50 PM in Stage C

Freifunk is a volunteer operated wireless network offering city-wide intranet with local services and also anonymous internet access for free. 34,000+ nodes are currently available in more than 300 communities, mostly throughout Germany, but also beyond. Anybody can use it and anybody is encouraged to contribute to the network, whether it be by setting up nodes, providing services, or whatever they can think of. People offer Freifunk at home, in public places, conference rooms, on the street... everywhere. Socially, we thrive to mitigate the divide between those who can afford access to the net and those who cannot. We also provide connectivity to refugee camps.
