MTN’s Ghana this week launched 4G LTE technology to its subscribers, with a promise of improved and faster data services which are 10 times faster that 3G.

The Telecom launched with coverage in each of the ten regional capitals and some large towns.

MTN got its 4G 800MHz FDD spectrum license in December at a cost of US$67.5 million and finished paying in January this year.

The acting Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Noel Kojo-Ganson said the coverage and extension of the 4G LTE service is continuing and they expect to reach all parts of the country.

“With the 4G LTE offering customers will be able to watch television, shop online and download faster,” said Mr. Mohammed Rufai, the Chief Technical Officer (CTO).

MTN joins Surfline Communications, Busy Ghana and Blu Telecom, who are already offering 4G LTE internet service.
