In Osona Sud, Catalonia the distribution of Guifinet nodes is superdense. It's like the William Gibson saying that the future is here but not evenly distributed. Some areas of the world are already living in the future of decentralized user-owned network infrastructure.

If anyone says that mesh networks are impractical or don't scale to a municipal level then Catalonia is a good showcase of it working. Obviously not all of these thousands of nodes are highly tech-savvy anarcho-hackers, so this is something which can work "for the people".

@bob the City of Barcelona wanted to connect all governmental buildings to guifi. Telefónica obviously didn't like that and and threatened moving an office with several thousand employees.
