MoDE, Mobile Decisioning, a Kenyan mobile value-added services firm providing airtime credit to mobile network operators in emerging nations has been acquired by Singapore’s TransferTo, which rebranded recently to DT One.

According to Peter De Caluwe, CEO of DT One: “We are thrilled to have acquired MODE as we see their airtime credit service (ACS) as a key differentiator and growth opportunity given its natural value add to our existing global operations.”

MODE will become the DT One ACS division and full integration is expected to be completed in Q4 of this year. DT One recently partnered with Safaricom to allow PayPal-MPESA transactions in Kenya.
