“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.”
