Vodafone invests GHC55m on network expansion

Vodafone Ghana is undertaking massive expansion work, to improve network quality for mobile customers in new and existing sites.

The expansion which begun in November 2013 will see the deployment of a total of 403 coverage and capacity sites, and core network expansions using the latest state of the art technologies by the end of March 2014.

The decision by Vodafone Ghana to undertake the massive network expansion drive is to give customers value for money and also meet the communication needs of new and existing customers across the country.

Patricia Obo-Nai, Chief Technology Officer of Vodafone Ghana, said network quality remains the biggest driving force of Ghana’s highly competitive telecoms sector and it is fundamental to customer satisfaction and loyalty which Vodafone is keenly aware of.

She said the telecommunication giant has over the years invested more than 700 million dollars into expanding sites from an initial 300 in 2009 to about 2000 across the country.

“We’ve made a conscious decision to invest not just in our brand and market, but to build a network that is reliable, sound and stable. We are going to make sure that we are consistently reliable, and provide the best service,” she said.

She said the expansion would boost business and customer experience and ensure an improved and seamless communication, which would also enable mobile customers to enjoy a faster and better data and voice experience.
