The Open Wireless Movement is a coalition that advocates for open wireless networks in order to make the Internet more open and available. The coalition argues that open wireless is more efficient, will boost innovation and the economy, and bring the Internet to those who cannot afford it. In addition to educating the public about open wireless, the coalition is working with volunteer engineers to develop technologies for sharing wireless securely and easily. Interested individuals and organizations are welcome to join the movement. The Open Wireless Movement was launched yesterday by a coalition of 10 organizations including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Internet Archive, and Fight for the Future.
The Open Wireless Movement envisions a world where people readily have access to open wireless Internet connections—a world where sharing one’s network in a way that ensures security yet preserves quality is the norm.
