Friday 28 September 2012 | 11:57 CET | News
The Ghanaian government said a national fibre-optic project to provide sufficient broadband capacity is being initiated to enhance the work of municipal, metropolitan and district assemblies, Daily Graphic reported. ICT Minister Haruna Iddrisu said cables will be laid from Ho in the Volta Region to Bawku in the Upper East Region under what has been called the Eastern Corridor Fibre-Optic Project. Iddrisu said under the e-government platform project, several IT applications are being introduced for e-government, health, commerce, education and agriculture, among many other things. The minister said with the 7 TB capacity provided by the four submarine fibre-optic cables serving Ghana, through MainOne Cable, West Africa Submarine Cable System (WACS), Glo-1 and SAT-3, the coming years could see a quantum leap in the usage of the internet in Ghana and the development of its ICT industry.
