The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the folks who created the backbone of the Internet have developed an ad-hoc, mobile device based "private Internet" they're called Content-Based Mobile Edge Networking (CBMEN). Field testing is taking place with soldiers.
The program aims to make each squad member's mobile device function as a server, so content is generated, distributed and maintained at the tactical edge where it's needed.
The network grows in size and strength as devices are added to the cloud, and there's no need to access central servers. Aside from military applications there are clear disaster relief uses. What else could such a system be good for, breaker breaker?
