A Non-Profit Making The Internet Available For Everyone
Resources: NetEquality provides resources for governmental agencies, communities, non-profits, CDCs, and housing authorities throughout the world to install their wireless networks.
Customers: We work with low-income property owners and managers to design, install and monitor the complete system, sharing one or more DSL connections. Typically, the cost per apartment is less than $25 to install and less than $1 for recurring monthly DSL costs.
Recently an article appeared in the NYT. It is a great introduction to Meraki and NetEquality.
NetEquality is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to providing free internet access for low-income communities. We provide planning, deployment resources and internet mesh products worldwide and install free network hardware in qualified communities in the Pacific Northwest.
We rely on generous donors, customers of our store, clients of our services, and volunteers to support our work. Your donations and purchases directly support expanding internet access to low-income communities locally and throughout the world.
Our networks create a wireless "mesh" to spread a DSL connection over an entire apartment complex, neighborhood or other housing community. Each wireless access point can talk to its neighbors and repeat the signal back to the DSL.
We use the highly-acclaimed Meraki Mini access point in a secure housing that simply plugs into any wall outlet. See our complete Installation Guide for detailed instructions on setting up and managing a wireless network.
Mapping & Monitoring.
We also offer extended mapping and monitoring of your network so you'll be able to see how it is performing at any time.
