7 Mar 2012

The New Dawn newspaper reports that MTN Liberia (formerly Lonestar Communications) has launched its ‘Internet for Liberia Project’, as it looks to drive up take-up of mobile internet services in the country. MTN Liberia’s chief marketing officer Clement Ofori announced the drive on Monday at the firm’s HQ in Congo Town. The Internet for Liberia Project is aimed full-square at putting internet-ready wireless devices into the hands of Liberians and encouraging greater internet usage with the aim of ‘increasing the efficiency of Liberians through the use of internet in every field of endeavour’. As part of the drive, Mr Ofori said that subscribers to the cellco’s ‘EDGE Plus’ plan will be given a 20% discount off their daily, weekly or monthly bundles, while ‘iConnect’ (business) customers will receive 50% off their package price for the month of March, he said.
