Vodafone Ghana has invested in an extensive fibre infrastructure rollout to provide seamless ultra-highspeed fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) connectivity for its customers at home and at work.
As part of this initiative, Vodafone has begun a campaign to upgrade customers on its copper-based broadband to its FTTH service for free.
A statement from the company said the campaign is part of Vodafone’s FTTH rollout strategy, aimed at progressively replacing its copper network nationwide with fibre.”
”Vodafone’s fibre broadband service is already transforming communities in Ghana by enabling businesses and customers to do so much more. It offers far greater reliability and seamless connection across data and voice calls,” it said.
The statement noted that as part of the campaign, Vodafone is upgrading customers in various communities within the Greater-Accra Region onto its fibre broadband service for free.
According to the statement, the communities include Abeka, Abelemkpe, Achimota, Adenta, Airport Residential Area, Ashongman, Asylum Down, Avenor, Awudome, Botwe, Bubuashie, Cantonments, Dansoman, Dzorwulu, East Legon, Fadama, Haatso, Industrial Area, Kaneshie, Kanda, Kokomlemle, Kotobaabi, McCarthy Hill, New Town, Nima, North Kaneshie, Nungua, Osu, Oyarifa, Pig Farm, Ridge, Spintex, Tema Community 18 and 22, Tesano, Teshie, West Legon and Weija.
Commenting on the initiative, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vodafone Ghana, Patricia Obo-Nai, said: ‘’We have a superior network and continue to invest heavily to make it even better for our consumers as well as businesses. We are excited to provide customers with additional value through our fibre broadband service. Connecting to this service gives customers 10 times the internet speed they already get on copper.”
She said fibre offers a completely new world of possibilities for businesses and consumers as they get to do so much more online, at the same time, adding that the wider bandwidth makes it possible for more connected devices to be used at the same time, which means the customer can watch TV, take an online course, play video games, stream, download and many more.
Patricia Obo-Nai said customers in the other regions where Vodafone’s FTTH service is also readily available will be subsequently upgraded.
The statement urged both existing and new customers to visit www.fbb.vodafone.com.gh or any Vodafone Retail Shop to check availability of the service in their community and select a suitable plan from Vodafone’s portfolio of family packages.
“Vodafone’s family data plans offer broadband internet access for the entire household, unlimited evening and weekend calls to Vodafone numbers from your landline, as well as voice minutes and SMS allocations for up to four mobile devices. In addition to these, the customer can share broadband data with up to four (4) mobile devices depending on the selected package,” it said.
