The Things Network

The Things Network is on a mission to build an open, global and crowdsourced Internet of Things data network, owned and operated by its users.

In July 2015, The Things Network managed to cover the entire city of Amsterdam with a new type of wireless network using a technology called LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network). The network was built, bottom up, funded by people like you. Now, the network is being rolled out in over 80 countries around the world. Join us in our mission to provide the world with an open Internet of Things data network.

You are the network, let’s build this thing together.
