By Nana Appiah Acquaye, Accra, Ghana
MainOne has assured Ghana’s enterprises of premium connectivity, data centre and value added services solutions following the company’s partnership with Google CSquared in the country.
Speaking at a Business Breakfast Session with focus on Empowering Enterprises on the theme ‘Driving Business Productivity through Communications Solutions’, MainOne’s Regional Business Executive, Kazeem Oladepo, disclosed that MainOne’s partnership with infrastructure provider CSquared would help boost its increasingly widespread availability of faster and more reliable internet services to users, including a host of enterprise customers in Ghana.
According to him, MainOne has evolved from a wholesale provider into a business that is increasingly focused on supporting enterprise clients with bespoke services that helps them to meet their day-to-day IT requirements. The services he mentioned include pure internet and other connectivity services, as well as value added services such as cloud computing and collocation services.
Mr. Oladepo explained further that the company would continue to take feedback from its customers and that the recent launch of its CBD PoP in Accra was in line with its objectives to meet increasing demand for highly efficient communications and value added services it provides.
CSquared Partner Manager, Lord Osei-Ofori, observed that his company had built over 850km of fiber infrastructure within Accra, Tema and Kumasi and plans to building more within the next few months as part of its Project Link initiative.
“Project Link is about unleashing better connections across Ghana. The focus is on building better networks with greatly expanded capacity, working with partners like MainOne in building a stronger web in Africa and around the world,” he said.
The event was attended by Senior Level IT Managers across various market sectors and featured presentations by the Country Manager for CSquared, Ghana, Estelle Akofio-Sowah, represented by the Partner Manager, Lord Osei-Ofori and the Sales and Marketings Manager, Kwaku Agbesi.
In a related development during the previous week, MainOne expounded its support for the development of homegrown enterprise-led solutions as the panacea to ICT development constraints on the continent. This position was made at the Technology for Business Forum, during the 2017 edition of the Enterprise Africa Summit, hosted by the British Council and the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI). At the three-day forum co-sponsored by MainOne, representatives from government, academia, policy-makers, the private sector, (impact) investors, development partners, civil society groups and entrepreneurs from Sub-Saharan Africa and the UK gathered at the British Council and the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City in Accra, Ghana, to explore innovations in policy and practice in enterprise development and strategies towards strengthening entrepreneurship as a viable option for resilient development.
