An Open, Libre and Neutral Telecommunications Network Based in Commons

Its purpose is to enable broadband Internet access for everybody, with high quality and for a fair price, by means of developing a telecommunications network based in a model of commons, open, neutral and with unencumbered access. The network counts with more than 32,000 nodes and gives access to an estimated 50,000 people, mostly in Catalonia and the Valencian Country. counts on a diverse community of individuals, organizations, companies and public administrations agreeing upon a common license, with the support of a private foundation that watches over its development and integrity. enables a collaborative economy where volunteers and businesses contribute to the development of the common network thanks to governance tools like the compensations system.
