‘Wikipedia founder launches ‘The Peoples Operator’

l. to r. Mobilium Global CEO Ralph Simon & Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, chatting backstage at the 2015 CTIA Super Mobility convention keynote stage. Jimmy had just delivered a riveting keynote launching Wikipedia’s social action-oriented mobile telco service & MVNO in the USA. ‘The People’s Operator’, as the venture is known, is both a mobile phone service & an attempt at a new sort of social network centred around donations & community service. Jimmy also showed brilliant global examples of just why Wikipedia is one of top 5 websites on the web & why Wikia, their for-profit platform is so popular around the world. Mobilium played a key role in bringing Jimmy to the CTIA Super Mobility keynote stage.
