UMOYA, INC., A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

Umoya is a non-profit corporation founded by Erikas NapjusUmoya’s mission is to provide low cost, high capacity international wholesale Internet capacity to unserved and underserved populations around the globe, catalyzing the extension of affordable Internet access to all. Through international submarine cables and terrestrial infrastructure, we will eliminate costs, remove barriers to entry, and enable competition in markets worldwide.

Current Umoya projects include:

  • A submarine cable build along the west coast of Africa. Click here for more information regarding this project. In addition to Erikas, this project is being spearheaded by Ariane Moyes, James Walker, and David Selby.
  • Tribal International Carrier (TIC). This solution will provide bulk wholesale Internet capacity to each of the 576 federally-recognized Indian nations by lighting a new rural backbone network on acquired and constructed fiber. The goal is to provide high capacity connectivity to local ISPs at costs consistent with the costs in major urban markets.
  • Exploring ways to improve and reduce the cost of connectivity for K-12 schools in the U.S.

We’re seeking donations, as well as volunteers from the telecommunications industry.  If you would like to contribute as a volunteer, please contact us at volunteer@umoyanetworks.org.
