Alca-Lu sets sights on Ghana for LTE rollout

24 Jun 2011

Paris-based equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent has suggested that Ghana could become the first African nation to roll out Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. Speaking to journalists at a conference in Dakar, Alca-Lu’s Vice President for North, West & Central Africa, Frederic Sallet, told Ghana Business news the vendor was working with as yet unnamed mobile operators in the country with a view to launching LTE. ‘We are currently working on LTE in Ghana. We are in a lot of discussions on that subject for the Ghanaian market. And giving the lead that we have on this market and the strong success that we have in the US and that we are starting to have with some operators in Europe, Middle East and Africa, I think Ghana could be a good place to start LTE,’ he said.
