Millicom Ghana (Tigo) is set to deploy dual carrier (DC) HSPA+ technology across Greater Accra, Ashanti and Western regions, BizTechAfrica reports. The deployment is expected to double downlink transmission speeds for Tigo’s 3G customers, while improved clarity on voice calls is also anticipated. Amir Abdelazim, chief technology officer at Tigo, told the news site: ‘With the introduction of a second carrier [channel] … this will significantly reduce interference on the network. Our service will be seamless; streaming, online gaming and internet calls will be more enjoyable.’ The executive noted that the upgrade project was completed in the Greater Accra region by the end of January, after which it will be fine-tuned to optimise performance levels.
