MTN unveils fibre broadband service

19 Aug 2016

MTN Ghana, the local unit of South African telecoms firm MTN Group, has launched commercial fibre-based broadband internet services for residential and business customers, reports Ghana News Agency. The new ‘MTN Fibre Broadband’ offering is currently available at the Vanguard estates located at Amasaman and Chateau Towers in Osu, but network coverage will soon be expanded to customers within the Airport Residential Area in Accra and Blue Rose Estates (Kasoa), as well as serving other locations within the next year. As well as high speed broadband access, customers will be able to enjoy services such as IPTV and fixed telephony.

Commenting on the new service, Richard Densu, Senior Manager for Enterprise Technology Enablement, said: ‘Fibre is the best technology for the delivery of fixed internet access and its related services. It is superior, durable, provides higher speeds and is much more reliable compared to copper wire, which is susceptible to cable theft and may experience frequent disruption of service.’
