We’re happy to announce that the connectivity at this year’s HOPE conference will be the fastest we’ve ever had - and likely the fastest of any hacker conference ever in the States. Our network team has been hard at work making all of this possible. Your help at this stage can help to seal the deal.
We’ve already gotten one hell of a bandwidth donation but we still need to cover some other equipment and installation expenses to make it actually happen. If we can raise $5000 in the next two weeks, we will be assured of connectivity equivalent to an OC3 connection for the entire weekend. That’s more than 30 times what we had for The Fifth HOPE! This will make all sorts of projects possible as well as make it much simpler for HOPE attendees to stay connected.
Those interested in contributing to the cause will find a donation button on our main page which works through PayPal. Anyone who helps make this possible will be listed in the HOPE Conference Program. Donations of $1000 or more will get you listed as a benefactor, $200 or more as a contributor, $50 or more as a supporter.
This is something above and beyond what we were anticipating for this year’s conference which is why it wasn’t factored in to our original budget. This is a way for those of you who can afford it to pitch in and ensure that we have something truly spectacular and memorable this year.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation via a method other than PayPal, please contact us.
