Our story.

World Mobile was founded with a far-reaching goal: to connect the unconnected while advocating for economic freedom and dignity.

When you discover a giant problem it’s nearly impossible to ignore it: there are nearly 4 billion people unconnected globally—that’s half the world.

It turns out there’s a reason. The mobile network industry won’t invest in the last mile to reach remote places because it’s not profitable enough, leaving half the world disconnected from digital society and the inclusion opportunities it provides.

We started World Mobile to go the extra mile.

Unlike traditional mobile networks, we’re based on the sharing economy. Local business owners in unconnected regions can operate affordable nodes on our network and bring their community online while sharing the rewards—World Mobile Tokens.

We also believe in economic freedom of choice.

Most Africans do not have a recognized ID. We’re creating digital IDs for every World Mobile user, giving them access to digital banking, education, and healthcare. Our network is built on blockchain technology, so everyone can experience decentralized finance and economic freedom.

When we share the problem, we can solve it together.
