and they run 24/7. This opens up the opportunity to donate bandwidth to
the Tor-network, and while a single router can probably donate little
bandwidth there's strength in numbers. 

I was wondering just how much bandwidth routers running Tor could
potentially donate to the Tor network. Did some research and wrote the
following article about it:
