LoRaWAN gateways connected to The Things Network are used to provide a free and open data network for IoT devices.

Benefits of LoRaWAN include a range of up to 15km line-of-sight, while consuming very little power.

LoRaWAN is a narrowband system, suited to sending and receiving small amounts of data — such as sensor readings — and cannot be used for web browsing etc.
