MTN Ghana says it will pump $144 million of capital expenditure towards expanding quality network services, before the end of 2018.
Currently, the company is the largest telco in Ghana with a market share of about 17.8 million mobile subscribers – around 50 percent of Ghana’s market. The expansion is therefore to allow the MTN meet the growing customer demands.

She said MTN Ghana was focused on improving customer experience by investing in network improvement, hiring experienced staff, providing quality service, improving distribution networks and bringing on board more value-added services for voice calls and data services across the country.
As part of initiatives for this year, MTN would also roll out 230 new sites for extension, 200 rural sites extension, 695 km of fibre, 1,100 3G new sites and fibre-to-home extension to 20,000 homes.
