Open Access

What is an Open Access Network?

From Wikipedia:

"In telecommunications, Open Access Network (OAN) refers to horizontally layered network architecture and business model that separates physical access to the network from service provisioning. The same OAN will be used by a number of different providers that share the investments and maintenance cost."

Araneo has been an Open Access Network since 2004, and as of 2010 carries traffic for fourteen Internet Service Providers, several regional councils, and for government-owned Landcorp Farming.
