Our plan is to continue to invest in infrastructure that will enable us extend our reliable connectivity and rich array of value added services across other areas in Ghana.
This expansion is part of our strategy and commitment towards assisting Ghanaian businesses in their quest for improved productivity and efficiency through dedicated and reliable connectivity services, as well as accelerating the rate of broadband penetration across Ghana,’’ Oladepo stated.
