Awala helps to circumvent Internet blackouts

Awala-compatible apps use the Internet when it's available, and they switch to a backup medium when the Internet has been cut off.

  • No special hardware required
  • Protects against eavesdroppers
  • Free and open source


Remain connected even when the Internet is unavailable with Awala apps like Letro.

Service providers
