Our vision is to connect every home in Africa by providing an all-in-one service by including a smartphone, as well as USB power, lighting and internet to the most rural regions in Africa.
Winko Solar is the gateway to the online experience of African internet users. Africans in rural regions are experiencing difficulties connecting to the internet for lack of an integrated, all-in-one solution.
Winko Solar provides a one-stop-shop to connect to the internet: by combining a phone, internet data plan and a solar powered base all in one as a subscription, Africans can immediately get online.
Winko Solar manages the operating system on each user device which delivers the promise of insights into the African online consumer experience.Learn more
