Product Development, Network Engineer & Marketing
Nick inherited his dad’s tech-genes majoring in ISDS (Information Systems & Decision Science) at LSU, learned how to code C++ & SKL, and minored in General Business. He not only picked up the satellite technology of the parent company but explored further options for growth into Internet products and services. Nick thought it was important to provide an affordable alternative to the big corporate ISP guys and encouraged his dad to expand into WISP technology. He came up with the name and acronym L.I.T.
