Sounds novel and interesting. And so called community network is similar to peer-to-peer network to a certain extent; 
while the coverage of the former network (which is limited in a local community) may be less than the latter one.

> Hi all.
 
> I have recently “discovered” the concept of Community Networks. They are “large scale, self-organized and decentralized networks, built and operated by citizens for citizens.” They are “also self-owned and self-> > > managed by community members, self-growing in links, capacity and services provided.”
 
> A paper explaining them can be found here: http://www.sigcomm.org/ccr/papers/2013/July/2500098.2500108
 
> Some examples:

> https://wlan-si.net/
> http://www.bogota-mesh.org/en
 
> I would like to know your opinion about this:
 
> do you think this is a good idea?
 
> Can they be a good place for developing experiments?
 
> I think this can be a good solution for developing countries.
 
> In addition, regarding TCM-TF, can they be a new scenario where traffic optimization could be interesting? I mean, they do not have too much bandwidth, and they connect to the Internet through a single link in > > > many cases (a bottleneck). One of the services considered is VoIP.
