"If you feel disenchanted with commercial telecoms providers and the stranglehold which they have over our Internet access, if you are unable to meet the costs, or even unable to receive broadband, then you will be excited, as we are, at the prospect of an open and autonomous approach to networking. We can realise some of the promise of modern communications on a local level at a fraction of the commercial cost by building our owncommunity networks."

The talk will cover the both the philosophical motivations behind the community model, and the technical details of how we intend to build such a network.
