Micronet was founded as a FTN-only BBS mail network on 1 September 2000 by Sean Dennis. We're happy to be celebrating Micronet's 20th anniversary in 2020. Micronet's co-founder and assistant zone coordinator is Andrew Leary. Micronet's focus has always been to be a small, friendly network that emphasises quality over quanity. We are honored to have nodes all across North America and internationally in Denmark, Ireland, Argentina, Czech Republic, Australia, Lebanon, The Netherlands, Sweden, and Britain.
