NYC Mesh

Jump to navigation Jump to search

NYC Mesh is a collaboration seeking the creation of a community owned access network. The network consists of Wi-Fi router "nodes" spread throughout the city. The network has no central server and no single internet service provider. All nodes cooperate in the distribution of data, also serving as a stand-alone network in case of emergencies or internet shutdown.

NYC Mesh's Mission[edit]

NYC Mesh aims to create a free, resilient, stand-alone communication system that serves both for daily use and also for emergencies — be it power outages or internet disruption — running software that helps our community with hyperlocal maps and events.
