What's the point?

I thought this was a new way of accessing the internet, if this is not the case what is the point? What do I get from spending money on the infrastrucrue if all a can do is connect to other computers on the WUG but not on the internet!.

Please enlighten me!

Sharky gave you a URL .. This is an extract from that URL:

"All WUGs listed here are non-profit communities, that do not offer any commercial services such as Internet, they merely offer an infrastructure for people to exchange information and data and play games.

All equipment is standard wifi equipment, operating under 802.11 standards which makes it affordable to anyone.

Joining and setting up your node is more a learning experience than a chance to leech files, you will learn a lot...

The goal of wug.za.net is to integrate all the WUGs around the country and potentially link them together in the future. " ...

In my opinion, I think one of the greatest pleasures of the WUG is to say afterwards that with all the sweat and effort I have succeeded in being part of the WUG .. And as mentioned above, you will have learned a tremendous amount knowledge on how the WUG 'ticks' ..

I hope you re-think things and have a lot of fun with the WUG ....

The Internet never was supposed to be a commercial service! It was just hijacked by ISPs. Is that in this network's future too?

No, this WUG will never provide internet access.

Dude, honestly i think your missing the point. with the serious limitations of connectivity in SA, Wug provides a way to connect, interact , and learn stuff...

IT's a club, it's NPO lotsa guys and gals taking time from there personal lifes to maintain and grow the network. With no payment but just the knowing that instead of complaining about connectivity their actually doing something about it.

TBH. If your looking for free internet then the wug is not for u, if your willing to enrich your self and the join a community of learning then Welcome aboard theres tons to learn.
