How to Get Involved

Objective - Why Mesh Tampa?

goTenna is partnering with local Mesh enthusiasts to bring off-grid connectivity to their communities. Mesh networks, like any neighborhood community, become stronger as more people join them. As local users with real on-the-ground experience, goTenna Mesh ambassadors are dedicated to augmenting the central communication infrastructure across America with a reliable, bottom-up network.

Creating a community powered network that works with any smartphone is great for:

  • Sharing messages and alerts with your local community
  • Enabling connectivity in neighborhood dead-zones
  • Having a reliable backup network to use during emergency situations when cell service is down, like after a severe thunderstorm.

Ambassador

James lives in the Tampa, Florida area with his wife, two cats, and a Boston Terrier dog. Professionally, he’s an IT Systems Engineer with more than 18 years of experience. He spends his free time going to parks, concerts, reading, and working on home improvement projects. A geek at heart, he loves gadgets (pretty much anything with batteries).

James first heard about goTenna Mesh being used in Puerto Rico during the aftermath of Hurricane Irma when all cell and landline services were down. He thought it was such a novel idea, that he immediately bought a couple of goTenna Mesh devices for himself so he could start setting up his own mesh network. Today, he still loves the idea and sees its immense potential.
