During the initial phase 114 cell sites will be installed in the Greater Accra, Ashanti and Western regions, predominantly in urban locations to ease network congestion in high traffic/highly populated areas. A further 161 cell sites will subsequently be added to Tigo’s network in ‘the next couple of years’.
