29 Aug 2006

Internet Ghana has revealed that it is to deploy the country’s first pre-mobile WiMAX network using equipment from Navini Networks. Leslie Tamakloe, CEO of Internet Ghana, said that capital city Accra will be covered as part of the first phase of the rollout, followed by the ten largest commercial cities including Tamale, Kumasi and Tema. ‘With high consumer demand, poor DSL access and [a] long [wait for] customer connections, Ghana is absolutely ready for mass market, rapid install, broadband wireless services’ he added.
