MTN Ghana readies 1,322 sites for 5G

Thursday 25 November 2021 | 10:38 CET | News
MTN Ghana has modernised at least 1,322 sites in readiness for 5G network roll-out, Tech24 reported. CEO Selorm Adadevoh said that risk-taking is a culture at MTN, hence it took risks in launching 2G, 3G and 4G even ahead of the availability of devices, to drive uptake. The CEO said in addition to getting ready for 5G, it has upgraded its packet core capacity to 525 Gbps to power its converged voice and data services on 4G and effectively deploy and operate one packet network for 2G, 3G and other technologies.
