3air


A blockchain-based startup, leveraging the power of decentralization to provide internet connectivity to consumers in Africa and provide the physical infrastructure to support this through its partnership with K3 Telecom. Only 20% of people in Africa are active internet users, with less than 1% having access to broadband. Compared to the 60% of the world population that are active internet users, it is evident that African nations have quite a distance to go in order to fully benefit from the world wide web. Physical infrastructure will comprise mobile internet base stations, each will support up to 15,000 internet users, have a range of 50 km, and provide up to 1 Gbps per user (240x faster than the average mobile internet connection).
