3air Leverages Blockchain Technology to Deliver Extensive Broadband Connectivity in Africa – Sponsored Bitcoin News

3air is a broadband internet connectivity platform that aims to provide seamless connectivity throughout Africa. Recently announced, the platform acknowledges internet connectivity challenges and the huge interest in Blockchain technology on Africa. 3air addresses the connectivity problem by using wireless broadband technology for previously unconnected regions.

3air is built on the Cardano blockchain, leveraging the chain’s progressive technologies. The 3air token also takes advantage the IOHK Atala Prism Identification Management Solution.

This company will build broadband infrastructure in countries that other institutions are not able to. Most of Africa’s internet users connect using mobile internet, which is often limited in bandwidth, expensive and unreliable. 3air is offering broadband internet at speeds of up to 1 Gbps along with IP telephone and digital TV subscriptions.

According to the World Bank the construction of high-speed internet infrastructure will require more than $100 billion investment and could take up to 2030, according the World Bank. 3air’s proposed solution launches broadband services in a new country within 6 months and investments of around $10-$20 million.

3air Strengthening K3 last mile tech

One of 3air’s most vital partners is K3 Telecom, a leading telecommunications service provider in the industry today. The technology uses microwave radio waves to transmit information through the air. It offers a quicker and cheaper way to procure services.

A base station is used by K3 to distribute internet services within 30 miles of users. The ground teams conduct detailed research to determine the best locations for base stations to be installed. This will optimize performance and reach.

In the long run, 3air’s vision is headed towards straightforward, affordable, and reliable communication pathways, unlike 3G networks. Moreover, the startup plans to educate Africa on blockchain technology after efficiently improving the region’s broadband internet connectivity.

It has been able to form partnerships with many technology-based businesses, such as CV Labs, Iceaddis and others, since its inception.

The blockchain allows identity management

3air is built on the Cardano blockchain, leveraging the chain’s progressive technologies. The 3air token also takes advantage the IOHK Atala Prism Identification Management Solution.

The Atala Prism system allows for creation of digital identities called DID’s, that can be used for identification and personal information tracking with privacy options to give users their provable identities. It also makes it possible to track the user’s credit scores. Users can increase their credit score by using broadband and adding payment information. This can then be used for loans inside or outside of the platform.

3air to Unveil Africa’s Untapped Potential

3air’s whitepaper provides several estimates for the potential market. Based on their research, Nigeria is estimated to have the potential for $60 million per year in broadband telecommunications revenue. It is combined with other continent-wide developments, this shows the incredible potential of Nigeria.

One way to maximize the value of the cities in the development is to create stable, high-speed networks. Sandi Bitenc (CEO of 3air) discusses the importance and benefits of setting up broadband infrastructure.

“Imagine your private or business life without a fast and reliable internet connection. Many people living in countries with poor internet connections are faced daily. Imagine the problems faced by such a nation as a whole. The development of third world countries must focus on many areas, including social, economic, and environmental development. Solving them is hard and occasionally conflicting, but solving them without information and connectivity is virtually impossible.”
