Open Coconut?

Are you wondering why our company is called Open Coconut? To us, it's more than a name that's out of the ordinary, it's happening at the heart of our concept. If you'd like to hear more about that, we'll be happy to have a chat about it. You can send us a message via our contact us link or via the live chat (bottom right of your screen) when online!

WHO are we?

Open Coconut is a startup founded by two engineers with a strong background in the telecommunications industry. We have started this project because we believe we can remove a lot of pain points that we have experienced during the last 15 years when it comes to build a highly reliable world wide backbone. Together we've built the largest backbone dedicated to Voice over IP, so we thought we would be perfectly equiped to achieve this.
