Ghanaian ministry to develop broadband networks

13 Feb 2006

Dr Benjamin Aggrey-Ntim, Ghana’s Deputy Minister of Communications, says the Ministry is planning to develop the country’s national broadband infrastructure to make ICT available to citizens in all parts of Ghana. The Ministry aims to build a Technology Park that would open further avenues for more outsourced businesses in Ghana. Dr Aggrey-Ntim’s announcement was timed to coincide with the launch of ExZeed Company Limited, a subsidiary of Ghana Telecom (GT), which has been set up to provide call centre services. The minister urged GT and other ICT service providers to take advantage of government moves to establish a broadband infrastructure and invest in its development so as to expand their present capacities.
