MTN To Launch 5G Network In Ghana By 2023o
The MTN boss says that the move should happen by 2023. Additionally, the completion of the 2Africa Submarine Cable Project will enable 5G.
On Wednesday, June 23, 2021, he made the admission during the inaugural Ghana Diaspora Investment Summit.
“We have invested in partnership with several other players, including Google, Facebook, and Vodafone, in the 2Africa submarine cable project, which we hope to land in Ghana in 2023.” “We recognize our responsibility as an African-based telecommunication service provider to support the ever increasing demand for internet services.”
“The project boasts a length of 37 kilometers of fiber and optical fiber for the 2Africa submarine cable,” which will connect Western Europe to the Middle East via 16 African nations, including Ghana.
He claimed, “This forms part of MTN Group’s efforts to facilitate a healthy internet ecosystem by enabling additional internet capacity and faster internet speed at lower cost with the deployment of technology such as 4G and 5G for the benefit of millions of Ghanaians and businesses.” He added that this was done in order to “enable a healthy internet ecosystem.”
The 2Africa is one of the biggest subsea link projects on the planet and will interconnect 23 nations in Africa, the Center East, and Europe.
2Africa will be nearly as long as the Earth’s circumference at 37,000 kilometers. It will offer nearly three times as much network capacity as all of the subsea cables that currently serve Africa.
This new route will provide Africa with much-needed internet capacity, redundancy, and reliability when it is finished; to meet the rapidly rising Middle Eastern capacity demand; and encourage the expansion of access to 4G, 5G, and broadband for hundreds of millions of people.
