Answer:
Fab-Fi network.

Funded primarily by the personal savings of group members and a grant from the National Science Foundation, residents of Jalalabad have built the FabFi network: an open-source system that uses common building materials and off-the-shelf electronics to transmit wireless ethernet signals across distances of up to several miles.

    FabFi reflectors made by FabLab Jalalabad to connect wireless high speed internets


  11. FabFi is an open-source, FabLab-grown system using common building materials and off-the-shelf electronics to transmit wireless ethernet signals across distances of up to several miles. With Fabfi, communities can build their own wireless networks to gain high-speed internet connectivity—thus enabling them to access online educational, medical, and other resources.

    Jalalabad FabLab demonstrated the capability of the FabFi system by bringing high-speed internet

    Pic 1: Steve A. with Said-Jalal from Bagrami after successfully setting up the Water Tower link (2.41mi)

    Pic 2: the two endpoints of the water tower link, FabLab on the left, water tower on the right.

    Jalalabad’s longest link is currently 2.41 miles, between the FabLab and the water tower at the public hospital in Jalalabad, transmitting with a real throughput of 11.5Mbps (compared to 22Mbps ideal-case for a standards compliant off-the-shelf 802.11g router transitting at a distance of only a few feet).
