Telcos agree to co-share ducts

30 Aug 2012

Ghana’s telcos have agreed to co-share ducts to enable them to more easily lay fibre-optic cables across the country. Mobile operators in Ghana have shared towers to mount cell sites for some time, but when it came to fixed broadband each telco reportedly dug its own trench to lay its cables. The companies hope that the decision to move to co-share ducts will reduce costs, help the environment and reduce cable theft, a problem which has blighted the country’s fixed line sector.
