Dublin, Ireland, 1st April 2015 – Dublin based Ding today announced staggering growth of +115% in the first quarter of the year growing its total consumer reach to over 4 billion phones. Driven by the addition of Thailand and Bahrain to their 130 countries already serviced, this growth is representative of the increasing demand for mobile top-up as a convenient complement to money remittance across the globe.
CEO of Ding, Mark Roden commented on the growth: “We are delighted to be providing international top-up to Thailand and Bahrain phones making it easy for those with loved ones or business in these countries to stay connected.” Speaking of the sector as a whole, he added “When you consider the positive impact a topped-up mobile phone can have on education, banking and productivity in developing economies, the growth in international top-up seems to be a natural progression.”
