Toronto ISP encourages connection sharing

Wireless Nomad is a bandwidth co-op in Toronto that encourages you to share your connection over wired and wireless links. Damien Fox sez:

Basically, we are an ISP co-op that runs DSL lines where we have to, uses mesh networking where we can, gets homes and businesses online cheap, and provides free wireless Internet access to the community around our subscribers.

High-speed Internet for homes is $30 a month, and businesses are $50 a month.  Because we are a co-op, people actually own their own Internet connection - and since freedom of the press belongs to those who own one, this is another step towards putting people in control of their communications and their community.  The medium is the message, as we've been told, and we think community-owned Internet with free wireless for everyone says a lot.


(Thanks, Damien!)
