(Reuters) - "Travelling and looking for Internet access?


A new smartphone app allows users to share mobile Web access for free with other people nearby who have the same app.

 

Called Open Garden, the app forms a mesh network that enables each person connected to it to relay it to other users.

 

"Every smartphone is a computer and a router, so we thought it was the right time to interconnect all of these devices together to make general access more ubiquitous," said Micha Benoliel, co-founder and CEO of the San Francisco-based company Open Garden."
