MTN, Ghana‘s leading service provider in Voice, Data and Mobile Financial Services, has launched the “MTN Fibre Broadband” service.
The high-speed fibre powered broadband network service is designed to provide fixed internet connectivity to homes, offices, corporate organizations and SMEs. In addition to the high-speed, subscribers of this service will enjoy affordable prepaid data bundles to suit their needs. Customers will also enjoy Value Added Services such as video-on-demand, IPTV, Voice and Video Calls, Games and many more.
Sharing details of the new Fibre Broadband internet services, the Senior Manager for Enterprise Technology Enablement, Mr. Richard Densu, explained that MTN is offering fibre broadband service because of the benefits associated with fibre technology.
He 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.”
The General Manager for MTN Business, Mr. Samuel Addo indicated that MTN is committed to creating enabling opportunities for individuals and businesses to enable them conveniently connect to the bold new digital world.
“We believe this service will provide convenience for customers to work from their homes whilst reducing the economic burden and the inconvenience associated with travelling long distances to the business district to transact business,” Mr. Addo stated.
He noted that MTN would continue to develop tailor-made solutions to meet the requirements of customers to enable them enjoy the convenience that the Broadband service provides.
The MTN fibre Broadband service is targeted to meet the needs of Real Estate Developers, Office Complex Planners/Builders, Corporate organisations, SMEs and Students/workers’ Hostels.
The MTN Fibre Broadband service has already been deployed at the Vanguard Estates located at Amasaman and Chateau Towers in Osu. This new internet access service will soon be available to customers within Airport residential area and Blue Rose Estates (Kasoa). Other locations have been earmarked for the deployment of the Fibre Broadband service this year and beyond.
The launch of the Broadband Service is a follow up to the commercial launch of MTN’s 4G LTE internet service in June 2016. Both services are designed to provide the fastest internet speed to customers. Other products and services designed for both individuals and SMEs include: MTN Asset Tracking service, MTN Directory services Business, Caller Tunez and MTN SME Plus service.
