About Zetifi

We're an Australian wireless networking startup building the connectivity platform of choice for people in rural and remote areas.

Zetifi is headquartered in Wagga Wagga, Australia. We have a team of 30 talented people focused on developing and launching a scalable solution for in-field connectivity in areas lacking reliable cellular coverage.
