One Small Antenna, a Router, and a Connected Neighborhood

Tacoma Cooperative Network will install a small antenna on your roof that connects with other antennas in your neighborhood. Together you and your neighbors create a network.

The router in your home provides high speed internet, selects the cheapest and best connection available and pays your bill - all automatically.

Every new user in your neighborhood expands coverage. Only a few homes or businesses need to be linked back to a fiber source for everyone to have faster speeds. Best of all- no big telecoms!

Earn money by becoming a relay node

A relay node helps provide internet to your neighborhood. With your equipment, forward traffic to your neighbors and earn money for every byte you send.

By investing a few hundred dollars in radio equipment, you can get connected directly to the source, enjoy the fastest possible internet, help your neighbors, and earn money. Not all buildings are well-suited to host a relay node, so talk to your local organizer to find out whether this opportunity is available to you.

Contact your organizer at hilltop@althea.org if you're interested in running a relaymail_outline
