For many of us, Internet access seems to be naturally given, but unfortunately in Germany it is still a privilege. This is sad, even the European Court of Human Rights and the European Council ackknowledged: Internet Access is Human Right. In Germany Freifunk activists and initiatives enabled people to access internet and communication, education and information sources in more than 400 facilities since 2012. means more than 15 years of social and technical innovation in free community networks. Beside Germany there are similar projects in more than 30 countries living these ideas. By sharing knowledge on how to build free community networks, freifunk delivers impulses against digital divide and for free internet access.
