NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Brian Hall is a former recording engineer and computer programmer who is looking to bring cheap, fast, secure internet access to New Yorkers as part of the non-profit group NYC Mesh.
The non-profit operates by using a wireless mesh network consisting of a collection of routers, rather than a single antenna.
“We actually don’t charge, it’s just a $20 a month donation is what we ask for,” Hall said.
NYC Mesh has installed roughly 350 antennae so far across the city
“The idea that a community can just get together and bypass the ISPs and do infrastructure like this, I think it’s a very inspiring thing to do,” Hall said.
