Join the Tor Network
The Tor network relies on volunteers to donate bandwidth. The more people who run Tor as a relay or a bridge, the faster and safer the network becomes.
Three ways to join and help out
Run it yourself
You can run Tor as either a relay or a bridge. A bridge will usually see less traffic than a relay, and will only be the first hop in the three hop circuit.
Use the cloud
The Tor Cloud project runs on the Amazon EC2 cloud computing platform. This gives you a user-friendly way of deploying bridges to help users access an uncensored Internet. Setting up a Tor bridge on Amazon EC2 is cheap, simple, and will only take you a couple of minutes.
