ITU PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP FORUM

Thank you for the article on Balancing Act News Update web pages concerning the Maputo Public and Private Partnership Forum. I would like to make one correction on the article concerning micro-prepaid. Micro-prepaid doesn't need specially enabled phones. It is usually implemented to work via SMS which is in place in almost all GSM phones. This is why it can be very easy to implement a network of independent prepaid airtime resellers, because they only need a GSM phone and a some money to buy the airtime they will be selling further with a small commission.
