Glo Mobile pays USD200,000 fine for delayed launch

20 Jun 2012

The recently launched Ghanaian cellular operator Glo Mobile has paid in full the USD200,000 fine that had been imposed on it by the National Communications Authority (NCA) for failing to meet the network rollout obligations as laid out in its operating licence, Adom News reports. It took Nigerian-owned Glo Mobile over three years to launch a commercial service following the award of its licence, meaning it failed to meet a requirement to deploy services to six regions within three years of the award. Glo launched on 29 April this year, offering near nationwide coverage with services available in almost 1,000 towns and thousands of villages across all ten regions of Ghana.
