This paper presents a measurement study of the topology and its effect on usage of Guifi.net, a large-scale community network. It focuses on the main issues faced by community network and lessons to consider for its future growth in order to preserve its scalability, stability and openness. The results show the network topology as an a typical high density Scale-Free network with critical points of failure and poor gateway selection or placement. In addition we have found paths with a large… CONTINUE READING
