Revolutionising Global Connectivity
The big picture
Our mission is to take everything we know about traditional networking – flip it and reverse it – and put the power back into the hands of the consumer.
Enterprises that double down on control, choice, and cost-efficiency have the ability to do smart business today, while building for the future. We’re giving consumers the network connectivity they deserve with global availability, right-sized bandwidth, and on-demand consumption.
We’ve created the network that’s bringing the world’s businesses closer together.
The team behind it
We are tech-heads, creatives, developers, cyclists, problem solvers, gamers, animal lovers, parents, engineers, cooks, and much more.
We don’t sit and watch the world go by. We challenge the status quo. We push the boundaries.
With our vision at the core of everything we do, our company is brought to life through innovation and interconnection.
