Globacom has announced that the Glo 1 undersea cable is now connected and live in Ghana.

Glo 1 is a USD1 billion, 9 800km long high-capacity international submarine fibre optic cable which runs from Bude in the United Kingdom with several landing stations between Europe and West Africa.

Globacom Limited chairman Mike Adenuga jnr said of the development: “ These are exciting times indeed for Ghana and the rest of Africa, as Glo 1 comes in to offer immense opportunities for businesses across our continent and enable them to compete on an equal footing with their counterparts elsewhere in the world.

Today, Glo 1 is here in Ghana to deliver transmission capacity which will radically change the country’ s economic landscape and indeed, that of our sub-region. ’ Glo 1 will usher in a new era of prosperity for Ghanaians as its benefits will impact rapidly on the transformation of education, manufacturing, agriculture, health, entertainment and commerce, fuelling the national economy as a whole towards higher productivity and wealth.”    
 
He added: “ Glo 1’ s state-of-the-art infrastructure is designed to provide unprecedented high speed internet traffic with cost-effective voice, data, video and e-commerce services across Africa, Europe and the rest of the world. It will carry traffic for Globacom and any other operators intending to lease the service. It will ultimately make telecoms services in Ghana and the entire West African sub-region much faster, more reliable and cheaper for consumers” .
