BeMobile, a new African digital mobile network has been launched targeting the Kenyan and African youth market. The network is enabled by global mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) x-Mobility.
BeMobile says that its international call rates are up to five times cheaper than the local telco’s when calling international markets like the U.S.A.
BeMobile’s network will enable callers to connect with the world on different international numbers (from the U.S.A, Canada and United Kingdom) using personalized profiles, without the need for an extra sim card. All they need is the BeMobile app to access the service.
“BeMobile will break the stereotypes of mobile and create an iconic youth brand across Africa,” said Kevin Mulei, Chief Executive Officer of BeMobile.
“The youth is the market to win. BeMobile believes in the African Youth Culture and that’s the reason we are launching BeMobile. We will do this partly thanks to the bold and inspiring spirit x-Mobility brings to the telecoms market. They also have years of experience and great digital know-how.”
The BeMobile App offers international numbers (UK, US & Canada) on your existing handset for those who want privacy and control over their mobile communication. BeMobile will also offer free calls to friends and family at home or abroad if they call within the app, cheaper international call rates, multiple new number profiles (including international numbers) for chatting with your dating site matches and more.
“BeMobile is an exciting youth brand committed to empowering and connecting the African youth to the world through digital solutions. Their new Pan-African mobile brand is not only exciting but disruptive and innovative too,” said Shanks Kulam, co-founder of x-Mobility.
