Morodo Makes Mobile Africa a Reality at AfricaCom 2010
London – Morodo will be looking to jump start the mobile market in Africa by offering consumers and businesses unique and affordable solutions to communication. Morodo has vast expertise and knowledge operating in the telecommunication sector and will be sharing their vision and views on the mobile revolution that is happening in Africa.
Morodo already operates in over 120 countries and provides low-cost Telephony and Unified Communication services within the mobile and online applications market via its MO-Call product. If you can make a local mobile call, you can make a cheap international MO-Call and save up to 90% over mobile network operator tariffs. At present, MO-Call device footprint is 2,094, which includes the largest software of Java feature phones. This is a group of phones that is the most affordable and most favored among African users. With the pace that manufacturers are releasing new handsets, MO-Call device footprint will continue to increase.
“We feel that Africa is the jewel in the mobile crown with countries like South Africa, mobile phones outnumber fixed lines by eight to one with their usage growing at 50 to 60 percent per year for the whole continent. We want to be part of making a mobile Africa a reality,” says Andrew Reid, CEO of Morodo. “With an estimated 333 million mobile subscriptions in Africa and almost one billion people on the continent now able to afford a mobile phone, mobile phones have not only become more affordable but also the preferred choice for communicating and connecting to the Internet.”
It was not until the beginning of 2010, accessing the Internet overtook traditional fixed usage(International Telecommunication Union, 2010). “Mobile broadband is in its very initial stage but has shown higher growth than fixed broadband and may be Africa's most promising broadband access technology of the future(Ghana Business News, 2010).” This represents a unique opportunity for investors and mobile operators, looking to expand their products and services and making mobile Africa truly a reality.
Morodo will be attending the 2010 AfricaCom Exhibition, held in South Africa at the Cape Town Convention Centre at stand number D06, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November.
Seeking to re-define the way we communicate via mobile devices and the Internet, Morodo helps people with international lifestyles keep in touch with whomever they want, whenever they want, from any device they want.
Morodo provides telecommunications services to hundreds of thousands of people around the world through the MO-Call software applications for mobiles and computers. Simple and seamless to use, MO-Call offers easy access to free and low-cost calling for anyone, anywhere.
