I had a dream that I always wanted to create a local community-isolated network, but the problem is to get the community to mesh a network together by sharing resources. My next thought was to create a single point server and have people to connect to it by providing the infrastructure, for around 3km radius.
or option2 was to just create a hotspot, but my thoughts grew as maid safe came along that we could create a mesh network cheaply and easy. But finding people willing to setup and have equipment is still a problem because no one want to that point connecting to the isp and having there bandwidth used up.
My thought is to create a paid safe network hotspot.
My list of things I need to do, I have so far.
(1) find a dd-wrt router with usb external hard drive connection available.
(2) have the user landing page have an offline download link for maid safe client
(3) I would like the safe client to be installed on my router to be directly to only the router and not my system.
(4) payment access
option one, sell prepaid time vouchers using fiat or safe coins
option two free access for 5 minutes for user to purchase safecoin to gain further access.
(5) things I have to think about, limiting broadband bandwidth.
My questions are
how would you create a safe network hotspot? or a mesh network.
or would it be better to create an offline safe mesh network isolated to local community and have a long range connection point to begin with, like the queen ant starting her colony. I am wonder if this is even possible?
