Does this violate Terms of Service (TOS) for AT&T DSL service?
Technically, yes, which is why WasabiNet buys commercial Internet access from providers with explicitly "share-friendly" terms. Also, we would work to switch any existing AT&T customers to our own provider.
Collectives are also changing the way St. Louis connects. Spaces like Arch Reactor and Saint Louis Coworking — and networks like WasabiNet, which runs mesh Wi-Fi in the vicinity of Cherokee Street—now provide St. Louisans with low-cost ways to share ideas.
