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. However, it is only suited to sending and receiving small amounts of data, such as sensor readings.

LoRaWAN is a narrowband system and cannot be used to provide Internet access.
