<p>We created a video with <a

Tech</a> to help understand why being a relay matters (<a

<p>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.</p>

<h2>Run it yourself</h2>
<p>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. </p>

<p>You can find instructions on how to configure a relay in the
<a href="<wiki>TorRelayGuide">Tor Relay Guide</a>.
Instructions for <a href="<page docs/bridges>#RunningABridge">bridges</a>.
