The mission of Aquto is to change the mobile industry when it comes to how mobile broadband is bought, managed, and distributed. Why? To provide access to mobile broadband to all individuals, allowing people to gain access to great content without worrying about the consumption of their limited data plan. With the explosion of mobile broadband usage and the inability for mobile broadband providers (carriers) to keep up with the demand, mobile broadband is fast becoming a precious resource. Providing the very best technology to distribute and manage mobile broadband opens up great opportunities for end-users, content providers, advertisers, and operators.
