Frequently Asked Questions¶
Is this a fork or duplication of <insert project name>?¶
No, the intention is to build upon existing projects, rather than to duplicate efforts.
Why not simply contribute to an existing project?¶
A particular combination of hardware and functionality is being targeted, with the objective of creating a complete hardware + software solution that is relatively easy to set up and that is reliable. As such, it’s possible that over time some of the software components used may change. However, the intention will also be to contribute back to upstream projects where possible.
Is it legal to operate a mobile phone network?¶
Of course, provided that you have a spectrum licence. Cellular spectrum may be licensed in the UK via Ofcom Shared Access and CBRS is available in the US, for example. There are also other licensing schemes available elsewhere. Further details will be provided in due course.
