Mig33 was released in December of 2005 as the first global mobile Internet community and has quickly spread around the world. With millions of customers in more than 200 countries, the service has taken the world by storm, spreading on the strength of user recommendations, bringing the power of Internet to anyone with a mobile phone.
The concept for mig33 originated in a library coffee shop, between founders Steven Goh and Mei Lin Ng. The two sat down with a blank piece of paper and a goal to figure out a way for teens to send text messages as much as they wanted, without breaking the bank. Ideas brewed on that paper which led to a business proposal and eventually to mig33.
The company was founded on the belief that the rise of VoIP and wireless technologies are redefining the way people connect and find community. mig33 takes advantage of the shift in the telecommunications industry from managing and tariffing the network, to delivering customer services and value. In this second age of the Internet, there are new opportunities to create value propositions that deliver customer and shareholder value.
Today, mig33 has opened the power of the Internet to the global mobile community. It's more than just surfing the Web - mig33 brings all the communications power of the PC right to the palm of the hand.
