Boundless Co-op is a broadband co-operative and provides wireless internet access for the local community in the Deptford area.

More and more residents with computer and a wireless card have joined the co-op and have now access to the internet without any cable connection.

The broadband connection is sustained by several nodes, which distribute the bandwidth through the airwaves to the users.

Working with Linux in Giffin Street:
Boundless community activist Pete Pope

Node London
Boundless Co-op
Deptford TV
International Co-operative Principles

These nodes are located all over the Deptford area, often in private homes, where volunteering co-op members are looking after the equipment and in this way help to provide wireless internet access for locals.

The Community Wireless Network does not use commercial software, but relies on open source programmes, like Linux software.

Drop-in: Wednesday 2 - 6 pm
Boundless Co-op is based in the centre of Deptford in Giffin Street, Giffin Business Centre.
