Open Garden is a mobile and desktop app which allows users to seamlessly share their Internet connection. If this works out and the app gains mass acceptance, it promises to make our world more connected.
It works on a simple principle, at any given point in time — some people in a public place usually have access to the Internet and others do not — Open Garden allows users who are not connected to the Internet piggyback on the bandwidth shared by the ones who do. Of course, this spells bad news for operators because individual Internet plans form a big part of their revenue. But for consumers, it means convenience and better chances of being connected from anywhere.
