PTPnet is a metropolitan area network in Portland Oregon, setup and run by Personal Telco.
The first neighborhood-class node is Node504, Rocky Butte, which went online July 2003. It had its first full time link in October 2003. its second fulltime link should be online in January 2004. Local content will hopefully be its most valuable resouce, with Internet access being secondary.
Some issues to think about
- Routing/IP Space
- Multiple Internet feeds (part of routing)
- Software to monitor radio conditions, throughput performance, etc.
- Costs/Fees if any
