Spacefon increases network capacity in response to threats of legal action

18 Mar 2005

Ghanaian mobile operator Spacefon has expanded capacity for its subscribers in the Upper West Region, in an attempt to stave off threats of legal action following complaints about network congestion. Last month Spacefon subscribers in the Wa municipality threatened to take the operator to court over concerns that the company’s radio-base station (RBS) in the area was unable to cope with demand. Spacefon, which is under the management of Scancom Ghana Limited, has now installed a high capacity RBS to remove the bottleneck.
