Glo Ghana to launch today?
Glo Mobile Ghana has called a media conference in Accra this afternoon, sparking speculation that the operator will finally launch its services in Ghana.
The telco’s official launch has been much anticipated and repeatedly delayed in Ghana.
Last week, the Government of Ghana slapped a fine of USD 200,000 on Glo Mobile for failing to officially roll out its mobile network services on time and for failing to inform Ghanaians as to what date they intend launching operations in Ghana.
Communications Minister Harruna Iddrisu said his Ministry had become impatient over what he described as Glo Mobile's lackadaisical attitude toward launching its service to Ghanaians.
Iddrisu said National Communications Authority (NCA) has issued a sanction that the operator will be required to pay USD200,000 or its cedi equivalent to the NCA for failing to provide service at least in six regions within the first three years of the effective date that their license was issued.
