30min: Building non-profit Internet access providers with Free Software
Building non-profit Internet access providers with Free Software
We'd like to share with the community what is needed in terms of free software to build and run your own Internet access provider from the experience we have in France and Belgium.
For us, using Free Software is both convenient technically and natural politically. To us, Free Software and Internet are two sides of the same coin. Without Free Software, we wouldn't have been able to build networks. More than that, a subscriber of one of these networks is not just able to know what's going on on her computer, but also on the very network which brings Internet to her home. We'll also share what we think is missing either or how we dealt with common free software issues, like how we ended maintaining l2tpns upstream, a software required for providing broadband (xDSL) access.
