Broadband for All is an initiative of GEEKS Without Frontiers, which seeks to positively impact the lives of one billion people in the next ten years through the use of technology led social enterprise.

GEEKS is developing a low cost, open source, WiFi network sponsored by Google and the Tides Foundation, a values-based, social change platform that leverages individual and institutional leadership and investment to positively impact local and global communities.

This is a major step in the direction of affordable broadband for all, capable of bringing tremendous economic and social benefits to millions, especially in areas where legacy broadband models have not been considered to be economical.
