Network services will be provided, including external Internet access.

  • A camp-wide open wireless network will be offered for use to all attendees.
  • Wired connections will be provided to fixed locations upon request.

WiFi

Info and updates on the ToorCamp WiFi network are going to be posted here: https://conwifi.org/ We recommend you download and install the certs on your devices before you get to the island. Or feel free to use the static WPA key network too.

Services

If you would like to provide services at the event please send in some info about what you are trying to offer, and every effort will be made to facilitate this on the Toorcamp network. Please keep in mind the nature and location of the event, and the facilities. A datacenter grade network is not offered, and services should be focused on local delivery and consumption.

Internet

Due to the remote location of the event, the primary Internet connectivity is provided by the Doe Bay Internet Users Association community wireless project that has a microwave backhaul link to the mainland through StarTouch. The connection relatively fast (~50Mbps) but is shared with many residents on that part of the island so we'll want to be respectful and limit our bandwidth accordingly. Skype, Gaming, Bittorrent and similar services will likely suffer poor performance.

Terms

Toorcamp network-ops reserves the right to block, throttle, drop or cut the cord on traffic that interferes with equal usage of the network by all. Please refrain from any activities that would damage the experience for others.
