African Businesses to License ONEm's Internet-like Service Technology

ONEm has also developed a blockchain technology accessible over SMS to support unique applications

ONEm Communications is bringing Internet-like services to the millions of people without the Internet. On any ordinary mobile, users can engage in group communication with each other like people do on the Internet.

The London-based high-tech firm plans expansion in Africa through licensing and local partnerships. African business concerns are currently discussing licensing rights and partnerships. The move will see advanced services for rural Africa spread throughout the continent.

In a presentation to African officials, Christopher Richardson, CEO of ONEm said: “Africa is a very big and diverse continent. Reaching all rural areas needs significant funding and formidable technical challenges. However, the ONEm's solution utilizes existing infrastructure to deliver innovative services to rural communities."

Internet-based group communications is the one service that transformed the mobile. An Internet identity allowed people to interact with each other globally without borders. Mobile Internet allowed friends to share and exchange information anywhere. They could interact with applications for content and services. They could create and own their own content.
