Our story

We're building a network for our island because we believe the Internet of Things should benefit everyone.

We want you to be able to participate, which is why we're working hard to cover our island in a free and open network which anyone can use.

Building the network enables people to create technical solutions which solve problems for the benefit of our whole island community.
