GLOBACOM has announced that it will officially launch its operations in Ghana on 19 January 2012.

The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of GLO Ghana, Mr. George Andah, made the announcement during the GLO/CAF awards at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra on Thursday.

GLOBACOM had earlier indicated plans to launch its operations in Ghana as the sixth mobile phone service provider on November 17, 2011 but rescheduled it stating logistics constraints. {jcomments on}

GLO has promised to provide an extensive 3G coverage, a comprehensive suite of high quality and reliable voice and data services and very competitive rates that would change the telecommunications landscape in the country.

Glo Mobile Ghana has in the past stated that its network would be supported and augmented by Glo 1, the high capacity state-of-the-art submarine cable commissioned in Ghana in 2009.

The Glo 1 cable is the first individually owned submarine cable in Africa and the only such facility connecting West Africa directly to the United Kingdom.

The cable will guarantee access to ultra-fast and reliable internet connectivity and will be the driving force for the business community not only in Ghana but also in West Africa.

Glo has also promised to provide the platform for robust applications such as video conferencing, telemedicine, distance learning, and customized services such as data centres and wireless virtual network.

Glo Mobile Ghana Limited is a subsidiary of Globacom Limited, an indigenous African telecommunications company.

Globacom acquired its operating license for Ghana in 2008 and had in the past three years pursued a rigorous programme of developing a world-class telecommunications network.
