Glo Ghana has acquired two million subscribers in Ghana since it commenced commercial operations in May this year. With this development, Glo Mobile Ghana now has over eight per cent of the market share, a feat that has been described as phenomenal and unprecedented in the country.
The impressive performance in Ghana has also increased Globacom’s active subscriber base in the areas where it operates to 34 million.
Also, Globacom will soon commence services in Senegal and Cote d’Ivoire.
Glo’s entry into Ghana was considered the dawn of a new era in the country’s telecommunications industry as anxious telephone users and the public alike believed it would provide high quality telecoms services, given the network’s pedigree.
The telecoms operator’s management said in a statement that it was delighted to have lived up to its promise of bridging the yawning gap in telecommunications services in Ghana by offering world-class innovative products and services. It said this resulted in the massive acceptance of Glo as the network of choice.
“In keeping with our innovative tradition, we also rolled out the most modern telecommunications network and introduced into the market abundant, superior and attractive value offerings in all the ten regions of the country from day one. This accounted for our instant success in Ghana.
“We are committed to replicating our success stories in all the countries where we operate and maintaining our position as market leaders in innovation, consumer loyalty reward and excellent service delivery,” said the statement.
Globacom’s services in all its areas of operations also received a major boost from Glo 1 international submarine cable. The facility which connects Europe to Africa and the United States of America has opened up a whole vista of unprecedented opportunities for businesses, government institutions and individuals and is ushering in a new era of prosperity by giving people much better access to more affordable broadband.
