Also consider that currently there are many people have already demonstrated a willingness to donate bandwidth and resources to the public by running nodes, so those people aren't going to disappear. They could operate mixed-mode nodes, with a fraction of the allowed incoming connections reserved for free peer, with free connections might be limited in terms of time duration. Bitcoin-accepting brick-and-mortars would probably allow free access to anyone connected to their internal wifi to facilitate people wanting to pay. Crowdfunded free bridges, assurance contracts, etc are all other ways to let people get into the network with no upfront cost. - -- Support online privacy by using email encryption whenever possible.
