VIDEO // Guifi.Net: A citizen’s initiative to bring connectivity in rural Spain

Guif.Net is a citizens’ initiative aiming to make internet connections available to everyone in rural Catalonia.

With the help of volunteers, 40.000 “ nodes” were installed and as a result more than 100.000 inhabitants are connected. The network is local, is considered as a “commons” and the inhabitants of the rural areas are able to enjoy the same internet speeds as the inhabitants of the urban areas.
