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, from the bottom up, funded by people like you. Now, the network is being rolled out in over 70 countries around the world. Join us on our mission to provide the world with an open Internet of Things data network.

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

The Things Network in United Kingdom

The Things Network (and other LoRaWAN networks) uses the 868Mhz radio frequency, which is a license exempt part of the spectrum in the UK.

Several TTN communities in the UK organise regular get-togethers, for example Manchester and Reading run regular events where we can share our experience, news, help new starters and find people to work on projects together.

We will publicise these events on this page to help grow our communities, and we promise you a warm welcome if you want to come along and learn how to get started with The Things Network in your area. In 2017 we'll look to organise a UK-wide get together once or twice a year to help showcase some of the exciting projects we've been working on.

We warmly invite you to join us on our adventures to create a nationwide Internet of fun and useful Things.
