The Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh who disclosed this during the launch of MTN TurboNet at the Accra Digital Center noted that since the launch of MTN 4G+ service, coverage has been extended to over 1600 sites across the country.
He said MTN efforts towards achieving its vision “to lead the delivery of a bold new digital world to its teeming customers” has spurred them on to research and invest in solutions including the new MTN TurboNet that will make customers lives brighter.
“MTN upon the deployment of fixed broadband services in the market has experienced an unprecedented demand for super high speed fixed internet. People want to access high speed data in their homes, offices, shops even if they currently do not have access to fixed broadband connectivity at their location. Ensuring that we meet these customers at the point of their need is paramount to us as an enabler,” he noted.
The introduction of MTN TurboNet which is a high speed 4G internet router providing a Fixed Wireless Broadband Service on to the Ghanaian market, according to Mr. Adadevoh is sure to offer customers a superior fixed wireless broadband experience and enhance business productivity as well as improve the residential market, and in effect support national development.
