It's truly a scrappy rural wireless start up story. I just wanted to have a fast Internet connection at home. But in the end, I became an ISP. The how, the why, the challenges I faced, and all the fun I had!

The pandemic left me stuck working from home. I cancelled my apartment rent, and moved back to my home village. But, I had no fast Internet available which I needed for work. Two years later, after a lot of mistakes, wrong turns and bad strategy, I have a fast direct fiber connection to my home. And I am an ISP. How and why I became an Internet provider, you'll have to listen to find out :)
