What will you say about MTN stepping up the game by introducing 4G+ service in Ghana. We’ve heard rumours about some upcoming devices having the 5G network, but in this part of the world, majority of us are still using the 3G service, while only few are using the 4G service.
Ghana’s leading telecommunications service provider has launched its 4G+ service to provide faster data speeds with widest coverage for its customers. Announcing the service, the CEO of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh, expressed delight at the extent to which the 4G+ technology will further impact the development of the country as it provides more opportunities for Ghanaians to fully utilize digital services. “The underlying belief we have, which drives us in providing more enhanced technologies, is that everybody deserves the benefits of a modern connected life.”
He said, this year is MTN’s ‘Year of the Customer’ and to make our customers lives a whole lot brighter we continue to invest in the latest technology to enable them experience an enhanced digital lifestyle. “Additionally, it will also go to support the growth of the country in the areas of Artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and Big Data.
“If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change”, this was what Selorm Adadevoh, the CEO of MTN Ghana said during the launch of the 4G+ service.
He added, “With faster internet and wider coverage, the transmission of data can be done with ease, on-the-go, with the best speed everywhere. Higher speed internet broadband promotes business growth and enriched social lives, ultimately boosting national development.”
We’ve heard the saying of 3G being great, while 4G is greater. Looking at the 4G+, we know that it will offer faster internet speed and will enhance it up to 20x if migrating from 3G to 4G+ and 5x if migrating from 4G to 4G+.
MTN said that the 4G+ service runs on a 4G LTE Advanced technology using the combination of the 800MHz and 2600MHz for carrier aggregation, which is an enhancement on the 4G LTE experience.
The Chief Technical Officer for MTN Ghana, Mr. Thomas Motlepa sharing details on the enhanced service said the company had already deployed 1,226 total 4G LTE sites of which 625 sites are 4G+ in all regions nationwide especially regional capitals and key towns. Plans for full national coverage are ongoing.
MTN continues to consistently be the first to launch innovative products and services. MTN first introduced GSM technology in Ghana and was the first to commercially launch all the generations of technologies – 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE and 4G+, just to name a few of several firsts for MTN.
