Executive Summary

Refugee hotspots provide Internet access to undocumented migrants and refugees in the Netherlands using a portable device hacked using Raspberry Pi 3 and 3G dongles to provide connectivity. The open-source project was an initiative pioneered by members of the Internet Society (ISOC) chapter in the Netherlands. The chapter also wired areas frequented by undocumented migrants and provided them with fixed-line broadband access in addition to the portable devices. The hotspot provides a rate-limited connection at 50 kilobits per second (kbps), funded through donations.
