There are a lot of people and businesses that have supported us as we've grown and learned. Here I'd just like to take a moment and thank everyone that has given us a helping hand.
Bottom line is this, PersonalTelco is volunteer driven and wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the hard work of lots of people. Everyone who reads the MailingList, answers questions, works on the web site, attends meetings, helps organize events, puts up nodes, converts people to the "new wireless order" ... this goes out to you. Thanks, we wouldn't behere if it wasn't for you.
This list is far from complete, and my memory isn't the best, so if I've left someone out, please just add them. -- AdamShand
