Alternet's Mobile Payment and M-Commerce Solutions

Alternet's solutions focus on mobile payment and m-commerce systems and solutions that tie together telecom operators, financial institutions, and payees such as mass public transportation and utility providers. With the majority of the population in emerging markets belonging to the "unbanked" sector, mobile banking opens up a major opportunity to deliver financial services to a rapidly growing subscriber base. Penetration of mobile services around the world has increased rapidly, with the subscriber base worldwide growing from just over 11 million mobile phone users in 1990 to over 3 billion in 2008. Growth is particularly impressive in developing economies. With only 1 billion bank accounts worldwide and close to 4 billion mobile phone subscribers, both mobile network operators and financial institutions recognize the value proposition in offering mobile financial services.
