Connecting theUnconnected in Zanzibar – A conversation with World Mobile Group, CEO, Micky Waltkins
World Mobile is on a mission to connect Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous island off the coast of Tanzania, online through a mobile network built on blockchain technology, making the internet available to the entire population of 1.5 million people. As a result, they are giving the traditional mobile operators a run for their money.
Earlier this month, the company announced it had completed the reservation of its 1,000 Earth Nodes blockchain network to connect the Tanzanian islands of Zanzibar and Pemba.
