What is a Community Network?

· Community networks are “do it yourself” networks built and managed by a local group to meet their own communication needs, like bringing affordable Internet to their community.

· They are the result of people working together, combining their resources, organizing their efforts, and connecting themselves in order to close both connectivity and cultural gaps.

· Community networks may be built and managed by individuals, local organizations, private sector entities, and/or government bodies, and they usually operate on a cost-recovery basis.

· This training will offer you a deep understanding of the technology behind a community network and the skills necessary to run it.
