The quadir family have been in the middle of village mobile revolutions for the poorest since 1996- that;s when iqbal quadir assembled a partnership:

the norwegian mobile supplier telenor
the philanthropist george soros
-they acquired the first mobile license in bangladesh at cents in the dollar because experts had assumed there would be almost no market for mobiles in bangladesh
yunus distributed one village phone per 60 womens in village centres- she hired out the phone and also became a personal yellow page huib for services villagers might need
the rest of the company developed standard services for citizens
about one third of grameen phone was owned by yunus on behalf of hos village women members of grameen
over time the quadirs wanted to innovate different solutions to yunus- while iqbal built operation out of a unit at MIT sponsored by legatum in dubai, his brother designed the digital startup cell bazaar
they monitored other mobile services for the poor most notably mpesa in kenya and formed a partnership with nick hughes money for motion to develop digital banking for the poor where they moved over to brac as their village partner- the ventitre with brac called www.bkash.com has become the largest cashless bank in the world with additional partners like bill an melinda gates and since summer 2018 jack ma

5G 2020s (4 3 2) 1 G 1970s
And Gordon Moore of Intel had just written a paper promising that microelectronic engineers would improve tech 100 fold every G decade to 2020s -that's a trillion fold more powerful microchips in 2030 than man raced to the moon with.
