Quika, the world’s first free satellite internet service has been shortlisted for a prestigious ITU Telecom World Awards in the Global SME category.
The Global SME Awards recognise the most promising and innovative solutions of ICT for social impact.
As the UN specialised agency for ICTs, with 193 Member States, over 700 private sector entities and 150 years of sector expertise, ITU understands the critical role of ICT solutions in accelerating social and economic development across emerging and developed markets alike.
Alan Afrasiab, founder and chairman of Quika and CEO of Talia Limited explained; “We believe that left unbalanced, entire communities and regions will be abandoned by technological and economic progress.
“Over the past 12 months, our development teams have been working tirelessly with leading technology partners to deliver a seamless user experience enabling customers to self-install satellite equipment quickly and easily and get connected to the Quika portal to allow them to access to entry-level free or volume-based Pay As You Go services.
“Our patent-pending technology will deliver dynamic content including local public service announcements, video and advertising without using the customer’s bandwidth allocation.”
Quika will be presenting to the jury during ITU Telecom World in Durban, South Africa from 10-13 September 2018. For more information on Quika, visit https://quika.online or ITU Telecom World 2018, please visit http://telecomworld.itu.int
