Customer experience on 4G LTE will never be the same following the successful launch of Busy Internet 4G services in Accra. Indeed the days of poor quality of service delivery in connecting to the internet super highway on the 4G platform and the high cost of 4G modems are definitely over, the company says.
With an enviable track record of winning the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana (CIMG) ISP of the year awards for three years running from 2009 – 2011 and also inducted into the CIMG Hall of Fame in 2012 and 2013. Busy Internet has positioned itself as the number one stop shop when it comes to the delivery of excellent internet services to customers in Ghana.
No wonder the introduction of 4G LTE to its numerous services comes as good news to internet enthusiasts across the country. With a MiFi priced from more low as GHC; 99.00, 4G services have become more affordable to the general public than ever before. Subscribers can bundle Busy data ranging from 100MB to 50GB , with the ability to rollover unused data from one bundle to the next.
It also offers a choice of Unlimited Freebies to any customers who purchase more than 5GB of data each month – customers can choose between unlimited and free usage of Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, Ghanaweb or Myjoyonline; or unlimited and free usage either at night or at the weekend.
The Managing Director of Busy Internet, Mr Praveen Sadalage speaking during the official launch of the Busy 4G platform in Accra, promised the provision of reliable and quality network, excellent customer service, innovative and affordable tariffs and assured customers of service convenience, faster Internet speed, affordability, wider range of IT services and limitless access to information and business solutions.
“As we take this major step today, we make this move with a commitment to bring better services and experience that will enrich the lives of Ghanaians. We feel a sense of pride for being part of the change that we all see within the ICT industry. Busy’s 4G services will be rolled out in Accra and Tema; with two main service centres. The first, located at our iconic building on the Ring Road and the second, in Tema; both of which will officially be opening soon,” he said.
