Hi Sven-Ola,
thanks for your answer. We are also advocating for more bandwidth for this
kind of networks ;)
Actually the aim of this workshop is to show that ad hoc networking and
community wireless mesh networking can fruitfully complement operator
networks (which also use Wifi).
The idea is that user can virtually *sell* their ad hoc networking resource
to operators if they want to.
This does not disable the ability for users to offer their ad hoc
networking resource for free, when an operator is not involved for instance.
For that matter, we think that your experience building Freifunk would be
very interesting to workshop attendees.
It would be great if someone of you could attend (there are no registration
fees) and give a brief talk about your experience operating/building
Would you be interested in giving such a talk?
