PAWS (Public Access WiFi Service) is a RCUK funded project that seeks to develop technology that will enable a service provider to offer free Internet connectivity to access essential services to all. This will provide greater opportunities of access, enabling digital inclusion and, in turn supporting the UK Government’s ‘digital by default’ programme with associated cost savings. This short paper outlines a paradigm based on a set of techniques that make unused capacity in home broadband networks available to other users, and describes how the methods will be realised and assessed by experimental deployments to urban and rural communities.
