Introducing Personal Telco
Personal Telco is a collection of individuals, businesses, and organizations who share -- or plan to share -- internet connectivity rather than hoard it. It's also a group of volunteers who want this network to grow. We believe internet access should be available, fair, and uncensored. Personal Telco Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Portland, Oregon. You can help us help everybody with a donation of your time, money, or bandwidth. If you don't live in Portland, there may be a similar group near you. If there's not, maybe you could start one!
Personal Telco Project operates numerous open-access free-to-the-end-user networks around the city, thanks to the generosity of our hosts. Check out our wifi map.
Want to Help?
Personal Telco welcomes all comers. Whether you're a technology wizard or technically incompetent, volunteering with us is a great way to learn something new, enjoy teaching others, or use your skills to do something useful (or delightfully, artistically, hilariously non-useful!) Sign up for our mailing list, drop by our IRC live chat, or attend a meeting!
Want to Host a Network?
Are you an individual, business, housing project, neighborhood group or other organization that would consider sharing your internet connection with your friends and neighbors? There are many benefits to doing so, and only a few drawbacks — most of which can be overcome or minimized. Get in touch to learn more!
The Nature of Personal Telco
The PTP is an all-volunteer organization: many of us have neck beards. Therefore, please be patient if you do not get an immediate reply! But don't worry. We have a good track record, we care about what we do, and we will respond to your communications as soon as possible.

Miss the Previous Meeting? Here's one thing that happened:
Dan thinks Node Map should only show "Active Nodes" by default - "Potential Nodes" are confusing to casual site visitors, likely to throw them off, and mostly pretty stale. Keegan and Russell agreed. Now just a matter of somebody changing the default.
