NxN Wireless was founded in 2008 by a group of technologists who believe last mile broadband access for underserved or sparsely populated areas has been unnecessarily impeded by the cost of infrastructure. NxN’s mission is to provide best-in-class performance at lowest-in-class prices by judiciously slimming down the base stations and consumer devices to minimal functionality, and allowing ubiquitous WiFi technology to serve as the “last 100 feet” connection.
