Karoo Alternative?

Greetings all!

As we all know (and so frequently grumble about) Karoo is the only ISP able to provide broadband internet to the city of Hull. We all recognise that this state of play is a little unfair, especially when we compare the cost and level of Karoo's service against offerings from other broadband providers.

Some people just cannot afford broadband internet, and some community centres and community groups absoloutely cannot afford to pay for a Karoo business connection or leased line!

This got me to thinking. Is there a way to level the playing fields a little and offer people an alternative? After a few months of research I'm happy to say that yes there is!

Various groups around the world have began to create wireless 802.11b networks on a not-for-profit basis to provide network connectivity to people. My argument is why can't we do this in Hull?

The answer is that we most definately can! And all it takes is a bit of community participation, a lot of playing with gizmos and a shed load of fun! So how about it? A community network can be setup using old un-used hardware, free software and home made equipment and if you think you can help then please feel free to visit a page I put up to get interest in the Hull Community Wireless Network project.

At the end of the day, together we can do a great deal...

Chris
