The Fonly Institute is a consulting research and development organization located in the heart of Silicon Valley, California, USA. Our team has more than 50 years combined experience developing groundbreaking products that place computer power in the hands of ordinary people. Our most recent design that has gained international attention, is the Remote Village ICT system for use in rural Laos.
Fonly excels at working in the early stages of industry development, where no consensus exists about expectations and standards. Our extensive experience allows us to make innovative and pragmatic design decisions appropriate to local environments.
Our efforts are directed toward low-cost, locally-operated, sustainable systems that facilitate economic self-development in rural and underserved communities.
