afforded by broadband metropolitan networking, individuals must cooperate.
TREVBUS will enable content streamers and others to pool their unused bandwidth so content streams can be sent to a large audience.
Most of the time, the outgoing bandwidth of a household broadband connection is unused. TREVBUS uses the spare bandwidth of each connection to repeat the content streams. Each participant's computer acts
like a TV or radio repeater tower.
Crucially, participants will need to invite more participants to join TREVBUS in order to increase the virtual bandwidth of the system. Each of these new participants then
has access to the pool of virtual bandwidth. They can become content streamers themselves. A virtuous circle of growth would be created, in contrast to existing closed and often cliquey media organisations
TREVBUS gives aspiring content streamers a platform on which to get their message out.
