No one disconnected

balance profit with purpose

At Lokket, we balance profit with purpose to build equitable positive impact to our community, environment, customers and employees.


Our mission

To build systems that promote equitable access to the internet, inclusiveness, community participation and set the conditions for people to be successful in achieving economic prosperity.


Designed differently, on purpose

We do everything differently.
We invest more in the experience we provide while still keeping it affordable. We're not limited by technology.  We love to collaborate, partner and be transparent. We know we can't do this alone, we certainly don't know everything and are always willing to learn how we can improve every day. 


If you're going to change the game, you need a game changing team.


Meet George, our C.E.O and Co-Founder.

I was born on a very small island and at the age of 7 got lucky and moved to the largest island on earth. In school I got to run a fancy thing called a BBS that had 3 lines (OMG) and loved my Atari and Commodore64, I still miss them.

Forward a few years and I’ve been fortunate to have traveled the world making amazing friends and working for some of the world's largest internet service companies. I may have also climbed a communication tower here and there as well. Let me tell you it can get hot climbing in outback Australia.

However, I have a chip on my shoulder. I've seen the greatest tool humanity has built for connecting and helping people hijacked. Lokket is aiming to do something about that, but we can't do it alone, so I’d love your help to bring Universal Basic Internet to everyone.
