Access Point Operators Wanted!

We're looking for volunteers willing to share their Internet connection with their neighbors wirelessly and let us conduct semi-regular testing at their home. Our technology is brand new, and in desperate need of real-world testing. Any extra monthly Internet costs on your end will be covered by us, but interested volunteers should be ready to spend about $150 on hardware.
Please fill out this form if you're interested in volunteering as an access point host.

Build Community Ownership

Lower Your Monthly Internet Costs

Secure Your Communications

Our network is owned by its users.

Wireless community-owned networks (WCNs) are a grass-roots alternative to Internet service providers that protects your privacy and respects net-neutrality.

Unlike private or municipal networks, ownership of our network is distributed.

Since each router we install together is necessary for the transmission of data, distributed ownership can be guaranteed with simple legal documentation. Our networks allow communities to move beyond exclusionary producer/consumer relationships demanded by existing ISPs towards a neighborly experience within their WCN.
