Open Access


Open Access -
An Overview

More communities are setting up Open Access Networks rather than trying to do everything on their own. This helps reduce the burden on the  operator of the community network, who does not need to be involved in marketing the service to consumers. And, it provides a way for multiple retail providers to market broadband service over that network without the costs associated with building the underlying infrastructure.
