How is Rootroute funded ? How long have you been in business ?
Rootroute is privately funded, in order to be isolated from economic

only technically but as long term stability guarantee for our subscribers.
We think long term first. This payed off when the industry trend went

Rootr.net started officially operations in 2000. Prior activity
since the early 90s in other Internet operations, and also
cryptographic hardware in Europe, now obsolete.
Rootr.net is not a large enterprise, but because of its background,
it is international in essence.
What is Rootroute's business philosophy ?
We believe in doing a few things the best, rather than too many things a
little bit. We also prefer to tell explicitely what to expect to our
clients, rather than generating false expectations.
