Busy Internet to roll out 4G LTE services in Ghana
By Nana Appiah Acquaye, Accra, Ghana
Internet Service Provider (ISP) Busy Internet will be rolling out its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services in Ghana soon. Information gathered by Biztechafrica indicates that all is set for the official launch of the service at a colourful event slated for the end of January.
Busy Internet, a pioneer in the provision of reliable internet connection services, will become the third private ICT company to roll out 4G services in the country and will be competing with players including Surfline , Blu Communications and even fourth and new entrant MTN Ghana, which secured the 800 MHz 4G LTE spectrum from the National Communication Authority a month ago.
The arrival of Busy Internet into the 4G arena is set to pose a challenge to market leader Surfline whose services initially was welcomed by Ghanaians as one of the best in the country, but unfortunately lost its grips on customer services and started increasing its prices astronomically forcing many internet lovers to abandon the service. The same can be said of Blu Communications due it abysmal performance over the last two after rolling out it services in some parts of Greater Accra region.
Busy Internet for the past five months have witness major changes in its organizational structure following a smooth takeover by IT firm Afrimax. The move according to sources is to position Busy Internet as a leading ISP brand in Ghana and Africa as a whole. These developments have also resulted in the completion of renovation and expansion works at it Ring Road edifice.
Under a new management which is currently operating from a rented office closer to the main office, Busy Internet has embarked on a pilot programme aimed at testing its 4G LTE devices.
It’s the hope of most internet users that with the introduction of a new 4G LTE service from Ghana’s most trusted ISP, customers will have access to real time internet connections experience, value for money and excellent customer care.
