Our New Wiki SMS Service Connects You To The World Of Wikipedia

Happiness at Afghan Wireless means that moment when we launch new products and services for our clients. So I’m very happy to announce the debut of AWCC's Wiki SMS service. This new feature allows you to search Wikipedia by using the SMS function on your Afghan Wireless mobile device. With our Wiki SMS service, you’re able to search all of Wikipedia, without the need to open an Internet browser.

And, using AWCC’s new Wiki SMS service couldn’t be easier:

  1. Open the SMS function on your Afghan Wireless mobile device
  1. Type ‘Wiki,’ and the subject you’re seeking information about into the body of the SMS message
  1. Send your SMS to 2424
  1. You’ll receive a reply containing text from the appropriate Wikipedia entry

Wikipedia is the world’s largest, multilingual, free-content online encyclopedia. Wikipedia’s scope and store of knowledge is astounding. Every month, 374 million unique users access Wikipedia’s database of 35 million entries, which are written in 290 languages. And Wikipedia’s capabilities keep growing—every day, an average of 800 new information entries are added to the Wikipedia database.

So often, I’ve written that the Afghan Wireless’ motto “Connecting Afghanistan,” is far more than just a slogan. Connecting Afghanistan—connecting you to your family, friends and colleagues—the people who fill your life with joy and purpose—is the reason we founded Afghan Wireless over thirteen years ago.

Our Wiki SMS service is the latest exciting example of how we’re using the most innovative technologies to keep connecting you to the people, places—and now, the information—which empowers us to create better lives. If we commit to connecting with one another, I believe, together, the power of our collective connection will give us both the knowledge and strength to build a better nation.

Until next time,
