Network provider, AirtelTigo, is partnering with Huawei Technologies on a $30 million project that’s aimed to provide a faster internet experience to customers.
The project, which has been designed in phases, will commence in the greater Accra region in June and is expected to end in October 2019.
CTO at AirtelTigo, Warren Fletcher, says, “[the] investment in our technology and infrastructure is an indication of our commitment to ensuring international standard network quality and improved internet experience for our customers”.
“We are modernising all out sites, starting in Accra, with new technology [that] will contribute to improving the network and enable AirtelTigo to make life even simpler for our customers,” he adds.
Mitwa Kaemba Ng’ambi, CEO of AirtelTigo, explains that “we are seeing significant growth in Internet usage among our customers. We recognise that this growing demand is in line with the overall increase in internet penetration in this country. We are excited to be a part of the digital transformation journey that Ghana as a nation is on.”
She adds, “We are pleased to be collaborating with Huawei on this project, a partner that brings a wealth of experience in this domain. We are confident that the project will run timely and with minimal service impact to customers. Customers are set to enjoy increased data speeds and an overall better experience once complete”.
Managing Director at Huawei, Tommy Zhouwei, says, “Huawei is committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organisation for a fully connected, intelligent world. This project, together with AirtelTigo, will bring improved services to Ghanaians with enhanced connectivity. We are just as excited to embark on this transformation journey with AirtelTigo.”
