The PoP will serve Tema and its environs, providing enterprise customers with robust ICT services, together with a bouquet of Communications services solutions.
“MainOne’s vision for a connected West Africa is to accelerate the penetration of reliable and affordable broadband internet services to support socio-economic development in the region. We are investing significantly in the distribution of our capacity within Tema, a major business district of Ghana, where demand for connectivity and other value added services is growing,” said Kazeem Oladepo, MainOne’s Business Executive for West Africa.
The company went a step further to partner Google’s Project Link so as to provide its customers in areas where it lacks fiber coverage access to a superfast fiber network.
This is the second time MainOne is building critical telecoms infrastructure in Tema, Ghana’s major shipping, manufacturing and trading hub.
In August 2015, the company built fibre infrastructure to the data centers of Blu Telecom and Surfline respectively and pledged to extend its reach in the metropolis to support the growth of enterprise businesses.
“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,” Oladepo added.
This expansion and partnership is part of MainOne’s strategy and commitment for assisting Ghanaian businesses in their quest for improved productivity and efficiency.
Amongst other things, the dedicated and reliable connectivity will speed up the rate of broadband penetration across Ghana.
