Vodafone Plans Extensive Fibre Development In Accra
Vodafone Ghana disclosed its plans to invest in an extensive fibre infrastructure network in Accra, Ghana.
The new infrastructure will provide ultra-high-speed fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) connectivity for its business and residential clients in the city.
As part of this initiative, Vodafone has begun a campaign to upgrade clients on its copper-based broadband connectivity to its FTTH network for free.
Specifically, Vodafone is upgrading customers in various communities within the Greater Accra Region. These include Abeka, Abelemkpe, Achimota, Adenta, Airport Residential Area, Ashongman, Asylum Down, Avenor, Awudome, Botwe, Bubuashie, Cantonments, Dansoman, Dzorwulu, East Legon, Fadama, Haatso, Industrial Area, Kaneshie.
Other areas are Kanda, Kokomlemle, Kotobaabi, McCarthy Hill, New Town, Nima, North Kaneshie, Nungua, Osu, Oyarifa, Pig Farm, Ridge, Spintex, Tema Community 18 and 22, Tesano, Teshie, West Legon and Weija.
The news was disclosed earlier this week by Madam Patricia Obo-Nai, CEO of Vodafone Ghana.
At the launch event, Madam Obo-Nai stressed, “We have a superior network and continue to invest heavily to make it even better for our consumers as well as businesses. We are excited to provide customers with additional value through our fibre broadband service. Connecting to this service gives customers 10 times the internet speed they already get on copper. The wider bandwidth makes it possible for more connected devices to be used at the same time, which means you can watch TV, take an online course, play video games, stream, download and many more. Customers in the other regions where our FTTH service is also readily available will be subsequently upgraded.’’
