Since our founding in 2009, we’ve been on a mission to accelerate the pace of bringing fast and affordable internet access — and all the benefits it provides — to the 90% of the world’s households who can’t get it. Through a decade of R&D and more than $400M of investment, we’ve created an entirely unique next-generation fixed wireless access technology, powering our first commercial platform, Gigabit 1 (G1). It delivers a game-changing advance in broadband economics in both mainstream and underserved markets, using either licensed or unlicensed spectrum. G1 started production in mid 2021 and has now been installed by over 160 service providers globally. We’re headquartered in Milpitas, California, with additional research and development in Pune, India.

G1 has been developed by an incredibly talented and pioneering core technical team. We are looking for more world-class problem solvers who can carry on our tradition of customer obsession and ground-breaking innovation. We’re well funded, growing incredibly quickly, maintaining a superb results-focused culture while we’re at it, and all grooving on the positive difference we are making for people all over the planet.
