Ghanaian ISP BusyInternet has launched time division duplex LTE (TD-LTE) technology in the cities of Accra and Tema under the new brand name ‘Busy’. Consumers and businesses can access the 4G network, which utilises frequencies in the 2300MHz band, via Mi-Fi (personal Wi-Fi hotspot) devices and wireless routers costing from GHS99 (USD25.2) to GHS399, while internet plans range from 100MB of data – valid for 30 days and priced at GHS3 – to 50GB of data (30 days, GHS400); users are also able to roll unused data over from one bundle to the next. Busy CEO Praveen Sadalage commented: ‘We have made sure that our innovative 4G service is fast, affordable, reliable and flexible; because that is what consumers told us was most important to them.’ As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, the company was acquired by Netherlands-based start-up Afrimax Group in late 2015.
