sure_logo Sure may hold the key to MH370 mystery

The GSM MNO which covers Diego Garcia that is

Here at GoMo Towers when we were browsing the Daily Telegraph web site recently, we spotted an article written one year after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. Entitled ‘MH370 one year on: everything you need to know‘, naturally it was a roundup of the most popular conspiracy theories. Reading through them we were struck by how convincing the theory that the plane was flown to Diego Garcia actually is. We’ve always said that the records kept by cellular operators could how the key to where the plane travelled after it made a u-turn. However, we’d never thought to mention Sure – the GSM mobile network operator [MNO] which runs a service that covers Diego Garcia. If the mobile phones of passengers and crew really were ringing days after the aircraft’s disappearance, the Sure network could well have been providing the connexion. Continue reading

keilback - accused by wingoads GoMo News reader rails @ AdMobix

Wingoads trying to get $2,000 refund

As probably the only truly independent news sites around covering the mobile advertising arena, Alex Lane of WingoAds contacted GoMo News out of frustration over his dealings with programic mobile specialists, AdMobix. Lane seems especially angry with AdMobix’ CEO, Kent Keilback who he accuses of refusing to contact his company (Wingoads). Mr Lane also alleges that AdMobix refuses to pay $2,000 owed to his company and urges other GoMo News readers to blacklist this supplier. Actually Nick Lane used quite colourful language saying, “We are writing to let you know that AdMobix is a bunch of cr**ks and th*****s.” So now, GoMo News is waiting to hear from Mr Keilback, too in order to see how he responds to these major allegations.

BT_logo BT to become 4G MVNO says report

Probably start with SIM-only offering

According to a report in the Sunday Telegraph here, the UK’s entrenched Telco – BT (formerly British Telecom) is all set to announce that it intends to be an MVNO [Mobile Virtual Network Operator] for 4G. The service will utilise EE’s 4G network – which is probably why the company chose to buy EE – rather than O2 as GoMo News had always predicted. As BT hopes to acquire EE eventually, the company won’t want all the hassle of selling handsets through stores. So it will probably kick off with a SIM only offering. Which will, of course, mean that BT can finally offer a full ‘fourplay’ option to its customers. Continue reading

mcmahon - IoT makes cameo appearance in budget UK budget would boost Brit IoT research

We’re not quite sure what ‘Intelligent Mobility’ is

Over here in Blighty [UK], the existing British Chancellor – George Osborne, has committed a future Conservative-led government to invest a whole pile of dosh in what it is calling ‘Intelligent Mobility’. We’re not quite sure what that term encompasses. However, the UK government reckons it focuses on “enhancing the development of driverless car technology and the systems required to implement and adopt the technology, such as telecommunications. Hmm. That could mean 5G. Anyway there’s £100 million for Research and Development into Intelligent Mobility up for grabs so get your proposal in fast. Oh, and there’s £40 million for demonstrator programmes; business incubator space and a research hub to develop applications for Internet of Things [IoT]. “Following the recent launch by Apple of ResearchKit, the fact that the Internet of Things has now made a cameo appearance in the Budget is highly encouraging,” commented Freddie McMahon, director for strategy and innovation with
Anomaly42. Continue reading
