What is AFMUG?

The Animal Farm consists of (originally Canopy-based) WISPs and now FTTH operators from around the world who in large part provide high-grade, high-speed broadband service to areas under-served (or poorly served) by incumbent wireline service providers (i.e. cable & telco). The group's activities are sponsored largely by McCown Technology Corporation & PacketFlux

AFMUG originally stood for Animal Farm Motorola Users Groups, later changed to Advanced Fiber & Microwave Users Group.
