Redefining the connectivty without data plan

I say a good amount of people will turn towards this old-fashioned way to connect to the internet using this method. Only this time it will be over cellular 2G networks rather than the use of dial-up, hard copper, twisted wires and all the troubles we had to go through.

This one-of-a-kind company, Pangea Communications from New York, says that this is the solution to the lack of data packages for people in areas such as Africa. The process is to transform the fundamental data into an inflected sound wave and then send the audio down existing 2G platforms and similar mobile devices. Any sort of mobile unit would get the job done. That is because the audio is transformed straight back into automated data once it is received by the cellular hardware, and then that information is loaded. Furthermore, the concept is that individuals in less developed nations and places without 3G can quickly post to Facebook, check out a Twitter trend, utilize Wikipedia and so on and so forth. In fact, any straight forward data necessitating text function can utilize this method of tonal data exchange via sound without 3G.
The company’s setup works by converting an inquiry for data, something like a website, into a sound wave. It is then sent at sixty-four kbps over the voice channel. Pangea rebuilds that request inside its cloud and yields the content to the channel-able device. There it is converted again into electronic pulses of ones and zeros and displayed as content in a browser. Also, it can be used for email and possibly eventually for a full OS experience, albeit a slow experience.
“Around four billion people globally do not have accessibility to an internet connection. That is more than half of the global populace, says Vlad Iuhas, founder of Pangea, while delivering a speech at an event in New York. “And while some developing areas are beginning to see better 3G net penetration, Africa is not! Africa has eight percent 3G exposure rate.”

Iuhas believes that developing out additional 3G data coverage is not the sole solution to the connectivity downside. Increasing 3G solutions are not going to solve the problems of the cost of online access in the establishing countries. An internet package can price a lot more than twenty percent of an averages person’s salary in a few African cities where 3G is obtainable. Data sites are also expensive and take a lengthy time to build. Consequently, 3G availability in Africa has not changed much in the last couple of years. This solution can be catered entirely, and according to their approach a mobile network company in Nigeria plans on working with them.

Pangea’s service model is unique. Iuhas does not think that low income among Pangea’s targeted sector is a problem. If one thinks about it, there are more than a billion people to sell this to. Interestingly, one opportunity that the company is discovering is to let mobile network operators supply the service to users much like a coordinator for the 3G network. However, one of the problems that cellular networks operators have in developing nations is that people do not comprehend why do they need to buy internet packages. They just do not see any use for it because of that sensed absence of value. So the founder of the organization wants the mobile network operators to offer Pangea’s service to regular mobile voice users to get them to discover the value of the internet. Eventually, this will help create a means for profits producing 3G subscribers.
Living in 2015 makes it hard to believe that the internet can still be used via the old school way, and yet there are billions of people who do not know what the Internet even is.
