LIMERICK, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2016 / One Horizon Group, Inc.(NASDAQ: OHGI), a leading carrier-grade VoIP solution for mobile providers and smartphones, today announced the launch of its second optimized VoIP technology in Africa through a license agreement with Cullian Corporation (“Cullian”), http://www.cullian.com. The application allows all of Zimbabwe’s smartphone and tablet users to make high-quality mobile phone calls for less than the cost of a local call. This is One Horizon’s second deployment of its proprietary VoIP technology in Africa following an agreement with Zimbabwe’s leading mobile network operator in October 2016.
Cullian is a mobile solution and payment service provider with a recently launched network initially in Zimbabwe and to be rolled out throughout other African territories in 2017. In Africa, Cullian is targeting smartphone users with low-cost call per minute options that operates across all of Africa’s cellular networks including 2G and 3G. As part of the agreement, the white-labeled One Horizon application branded for Cullian will be pre-installed on 20,000 ZTE tablets and distributed through Cullian’s network in Zimbabwe in time for the festive season.
Brian Collins, CEO of One Horizon Group, stated, “We are extremely pleased to expand our presence in Zimbabwe for users on all carrier networks. The Cullian white label application has been customized for the demand of Cullian’s subscribers and is already fully integrated with their nationwide distribution network of resellers. As part of Cullian’s unique marketing strategy, the application will be pre-installed on tablets and ready for use immediately. Users abroad can seamlessly top-up using PayPal and iTunes to call Zimbabwe for as much as 77% less than Skype per minute. Being the only mobile VoIP technology in the world that is retro-compatible with 2G and 3G networks opens tremendous opportunities for us throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa where 4G penetration remains below 5%. We fully expect more of these types of partnerships to close throughout 2017 and beyond as awareness of our unique smartphone solutions grows.”
