Bango extends mobile payments platform with PoP in London data centre

By: Mike Hollands

According to Juniper Research, revenues from mobile content, monetised through direct operator billing, are expected to rise from $2 billion in 2013 to more than $13 billion by 2017, demonstrating a huge market opportunity for international mobile payments companies. As this market expands, though, mobile payments companies must balance keeping consumers’ data secure with ensuring global access.

To meet that challenge, the world leader in direct operator billing, Bango, opened a point-of-presence (PoP) in our London data centre, supporting Bango’s long-term strategy to expand its footprint into every corner of the globe. Bango, which works with many major global brands like Mozilla, BlackBerry, Facebook and Microsoft, gives mobile consumers a quick and simple way to pay, without the need to register personal details.

We offer global companies like Bango many business benefits, including highly secure and scalable infrastructure, dense connectivity and close proximity to more than 77 per cent of European GDP. This means the company can have peace of mind that its data – and its customers’ data – is secure and available to users across the globe. Plus, because we have a reputation for delivering a high level of service and technical expertise, Bango can be confident that it has a partner in growing its business locally and globally.
