Faster, Better, Cheaper Broadband.


The EveryLayer Opportunity:

Faster, Better, Cheaper Broadband. Everywhere.

From downtown Lagos to a marketplace in Port-au-Prince to the outskirts of Manila, the next billion want faster, better and more affordable Internet—and they want it now. By accelerating and expanding high-speed access across emerging markets, we unlock massive opportunity for businesses, education systems, healthcare governments and individuals at every layer of society.

The cost of a high-speed connection in emerging markets can be over 100 times more than it is in North America or Europe, if it’s available at all—it’s no wonder that broadband penetration is less than 6%. To disrupt the status quo, we must radically lower the cost to connect for every last business, city and person everywhere.

Reach every last mile with EveryLayer.



Our Approach

Affordable, ubiquitous high-speed broadband is within reach.

Ambition, invention and the demand for information in emerging markets is everywhere—yet the Internet bandwidth so critical for pursuit of every opportunity is scarce and expensive. With very little terrestrial network in many countries, mobile network technologies—often the only option—cannot deliver truly affordable, high-speed broadband.

We’ve designed a way to deliver high-speed broadband. Today.

We leverage growing fiber optic availability and low-cost telecom-grade WiFi to connect the last mile with high-speed, fixed-line replacement networks. Our proprietary, cloud-based platform makes it simple to deploy new networks and services and provide every last customer a high quality, affordable service.

These markets, all of which are hungry for access to services and economic opportunity on the world stage, are profoundly untapped. With the right system and method, we can scale up to reach hundreds of thousands of new subscribers at ten times less cost, delivering a profitable, affordable high-speed Internet service model everywhere.

Our Experience

Born in Silicon Valley, built in Kigali.

Our team has deployed faster, more affordable Internet technologies in emerging markets in more than thirty countries —from capital cities to secondary towns and villages in mountainous, tropical, and desert regions around the world.

With every challenge, our innovation grows.

EveryLayer was born in Silicon-Valley and rigorously tested down to the last access point, router, nut, bolt and solar panel in Africa, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia. We have the proven expertise plus the unique, scalable technology to design and deploy radically faster, lower-cost broadband in weeks not months.



“We began to think differently about the potential of a new approach to broadband after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Six days after it happened, the expert team who would form EveryLayer entered a devastated Port-au-Prince to restore connectivity for humanitarian response.

Despite some of the worst conditions imaginable, we had a high-speed wireless network spanning the city in less than three weeks—in the months following, we partnered to build the systems for much of the rest of the country. It felt so important, and revolutionary—we knew that if we could deliver broadband swiftly and cost-effectively there, we could deliver it everywhere.”
