How it Works

ECO delivers a robust and high performing Wi-Fi hotspot service to end users at affordable prices. The ECO App enables users to buy and trade broadband credits so that everyone can use the Wi-Fi services.

The Technology

An ECO PoP combines satellite backhaul, solar power and carrier class Wi-Fi to connect a school and users in the surrounding community to the internet.

The App

The ECO App enables users to buy credits for internet access using mobile wallets from their smartphone. They can also trade credits peer to peer, this means that even unbanked users can get access, and local merchants can create trading business.

The Difference

ECO is not just a Wi-Fi hotspot, it gives rural communities the opportunity to develop and prosper with subsidised broadband.

Proven Success

ECO has been successfully piloted in several projects and is now ready for scale.
