Globacom a leading telecommunication company in Nigeria has commenced commercial telecommunications services in Ghana on the numbering code, 023, bringing to three, the number of countries in which the Telco operates.
At a press conference in Accra to announce the launch of the network, Glo Mobile Ghana, the Telco assured it would address the yawning gap in telecommunications services in the country by offering world-class innovative products and services, which will improve the way Ghanaians live and work.
Already, about 1.5million subscribers have specially reserved lines on the network, which has the capacity to handle over 10 million lines, the Telco said.
Glo Mobile Ghana is kicking off its services with a service, â€˜Good Day Ghana,â€™ which enables subscribers on the network to enjoy unique offerings such as free airtime daily for 100 days; free midnight calls; bonus on received calls as well as recharges and Sweet Number which enables subscribers to call one special person at reduced rate.
According to the Chief Operating Officer of Glo Mobile Ghana, Mr George Andah, â€œGlobacom has rolled out the most modern telecommunications network and is introducing into the market, abundant, superior and attractive value offerings in the 10 regions of the country from day one, a feat that other telecoms operators in the country could not achieve.
â€œFrom the day we won the operating licence, we promised Ghanaians that we would replicate our success stories in the West African region as market leaders in innovation, consumer loyalty reward and excellent service delivery. We are proud that we have kept that promise today.â€
He assured that, like its parent company, Globacom, Glo Mobile Ghana would be guided by core brand values: transparency, value for money, world-class service offerings and a â€˜never-say-dieâ€™ attitude.
He said Glo Mobile Ghana operations would receive a major boost from the Glo 1 international submarine cable, which landed in the country in 2009. He said the facility will open up a vista of unprecedented opportunities for businesses, government institutions and individuals and will usher in a new era of prosperity by giving Ghanaians access to better and affordable broadband connectivity.
