World Mobile Secures Spectrum Ahead of US Expansion
London, England, July 13th, 2023, Chainwire Decentralized wireless network operator World Mobile has announced it has secured licensed spectrum in the United States of America. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in the company’s mission to bring reliable and affordable internet access to under-connected areas of the United States.
Spectrum Secured Across Four US States
World Mobile has secured up to 20MHz of spectrum across the states of California, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah, providing a solid foundation for World Mobile’s US expansion plans. The spectrum will play a pivotal role in enabling the company’s decentralized hybrid-connectivity solution, which combines blockchain technology with aerial and terrestrial infrastructure to provide connectivity at a cost multiples lower than traditional mobile network operators.
Aligning With US Government Initiative
This move aligns with the US government’s plan to support connectivity across the country. President Biden recently announced a $42 billion high-speed internet initiative , which aims to expand broadband access to rural and low-income areas, as well as to promote competition and affordability in the market. The Commerce Department has officially distributed the funding, awarding grants at State level, ranging from roughly $27 million to more than $3.3 billion, based largely on local needs.
Deployment Plans Later This Year
World Mobile plans to deploy its service in the US later this year, following a successful commercial launch in Tanzania, and field tests in Kenya, Nigeria and Mozambique. The company has recently been bolstered by the appointment of ex-Softbank India country head and Bharti Airtel CEO, Manoj Kohli who brings over 40 years’ experience in telecoms industry .
