Nationwide Wi-Fi rollout planned for Ghana

Ghanaian ICT firm, Blue Cloud Ghana, has announced that beginning March 2013 it plans to unveil Wi-Fi hotspots stretching ‘across the length-and-breadth’ of the West African country.
 
According to reports, Blue Cloud Ghana chief executive officer, Kwasi Amoafo Yeboah, has said progress on installation of the first phase are at an advanced stage.
 
The company has also said it has acquired enough bandwidth from the Main One submarine fibre optic cable.
 

Yeboah said Blue Cloud intends to provide high speed unlimited Wi-Fi access, with no buffering, for only up to GHC 45 a month or for GHC 2 a day.
 
The Wi-Fi hotspots are planned to be available 24 hours a day.
 
Costs of the project, however, have not been publicly disclosed.
 
Yeboah, who was a presidential candidate in the country’s 2008 elections, says that he plans to help make internet access more affordable.
 
“I do not understand why access to the internet is still expensive on some of the mobile networks and ISPs in Ghana because the price of bandwidth keeps reducing,” he has been quoted in Myjoyonline.com.gh.
