Whereas, plenty of people come to PS1 and expect the Internet (wifi) to work, and whereas it often doesn't:

The current arrangement has proven to be unreliable and subject to outages.

A second, redundant connection is proposed, to be kept separate and not connected to any other part of the PS1 network architecture. It will rely only on the vendor (ISP) and electricity and not be dependent on PS1's network or other infrastructure.

The Sponsors volunteer to run point and do the legwork.


Authorize the Board to spend up to $2400 per year to contract/purchase a second redundant Internet connection, any associated hardware required, and up to 2 or more additional wireless access points (APs) to provide continuous reliable wireless internet access for PS1 members while at the PS1 space. The vote is valid for each year, ongoing. It lasts forever until rescinded.
