Here's a link to a guide I found online for an open-source way to put a meshnet together:

A link to the Meshtastic project, which looks to make a cheap meshnet that can be used while far away from regular infrastructure:

@imani is there anything like freifunk in the US?

@imani We really need some initiatives centered around medium bandwidth over a medium range.

Our current open source meshes are pretty much low-bandwidth for messaging between mobile users, like Meshtastic, or high bandwidth over small range (or big with an *expensive* setup) like AREDN's repurposing regular wifi hardware.

@imani I've been looking into this on and off for months, and yeah ... today's events further this need.
