Wouldn’t it be great if we could implement mobile money In Ireland the way Turkcell are doing in Turkey?

Turkcell are implementing an ambitious rollout of Mobile Money.

I’ve always had lots of respect for Turkcell as a progressive, well-run organisation – among the best that I’ve worked with – so if anyone can make this stuff work, I’d say they can.  It would be great to see initiatives like that in Ireland.


French SMS traffic slumps in Q3 – an outlier or the shape of things to come in Europe?
