NLnet pioneered the worlds first dial-in and ISDN infrastructure with full country coverage. In 1997 all operational activities were sold off, and since that time NLnet has focused on supporting the open internet and the privacy and security of internet users. The focus of NLnet is on creating a strong digital commons: free and open source technologies, open standards and open content that provide building blocks for the future of our networked society and the Next Generation Internet.
