Open Garden: Share Your Mobile Internet Connection
Article by George Norman

With the free Open Garden app you can share your mobile’s internet connection with other devices, like your laptop for example. It’s like tethering, just a whole lot simpler!

Say you have an Android-powered mobile device with internet access and a laptop with no internet access – and you want both of them to be able to access the web. If you don’t want to go through a complicated tethering process, there is a more convenient solution: Open Garden. Get the free Open Garden app and install it on your Android device, get the Open Garden application and install it on your Windows or Mac-powered laptop, and you will be able to go online on your laptop using the mobile device’s internet connection.


Open Garden works by creating a wireless P2P mesh network. It will connect data services on all nearby devices, including those belonging to friends, family, or other Open Garden users in the vicinity, into a single network that everyone can access at the same time. Once connected to the network, the devices will be helped by Open Garden to find a path to the internet. When a path fails, a new one is chosen; when there’s no direct internet connection, access will be provided via chains of other devices. To put it simply, Open Garden will find a way for your device to have internet connectivity.

The Open Garden app for Android is available for download in Google’s Play Store here.
The Windows and Mac versions are available for download on the official Open Garden website here.
