Like A free service to Richmond citizens, a 70 foot tower has been mounted by the Web Archive on its actual archive building in Richmond California to provide fast and free Web to individuals with homes that may begin to see the tower. Those attempting to make use of this neighborhood wireless support will have to purchase and put in a directional antenna on their roof for connecting, but from then on their access to the internet is free. In this manner we call it a quickly and ‘free roof2roof network’ because it’ll usually not achieve people’s notebooks inside homes. The sign works at more than 1 mile into a suitable aerial with point-of-site to the structure. Wifi devices with directional antennas may charge less than one hundred to two hundred bucks from suppliers like ubiquiti.
Offering free use of the web is a superb advantage for the citizens helping us produce a more fair and greater town!”

Hopefully that smart people may connect with this technique in ways we’ve named “tier 3″. Although we don’t have the budget to supply tech-support, we expect that entrepreneurs, lovers, or non profit businesses can help others get on-line.
Another action is always to expand the number of structures and homes that may hook up to this program by placing repeater antennas on large places to expand the number of roofs with point-of-site to this spine. We’d be thinking about paying for the gear and do the installation for a few in a position places.
Presently average of 4 customers are connect with our structure but hopefully this can develop.
Even more information on the gear. The community identifiers (SSIDs) contain ‘archive.org’ within their titles, and the 2.4GHz types are available without any code or security. Thank you to Ralf Muehlen for establishing this technique, for permitting a structure to be installed without any wait or trouble and thank you to the Town of Richmond.
