MTN has unveiled the MTN/Huawei Ascend Y220 Handset in Accra, Ghana’s capital city. According to the company’s Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Rahul De, appropriate devices are required for economic growth.
He said economic growth cannot occur unless the consumer has the appropriate devices to support and enhance the data experience.
He noted that in many markets across the globe, data services had become increasingly important to socio-economic development.
He said it was for this reason that MTN decided to partner with others to move Ghana forward in the digital economy Ghana.
He added that the network is focused on investing in world class technologies aimed at bringing relevant telecom services to their subscribers and was, therefore, excited to partner with Huawei to make available mobile phones that would enable people with busy lifestyles work away from their offices.
“Mr De disclosed that MTN had invested more than US $ 90 million in the WACS submarine cable to provide MTN subscribers in Ghana and across Africa the needed bandwidth and spent US $ 105 million on additional network upgrades and expansions,” MTN said in a statement.
He assured that similar investments would be made in 2014 in latest telecom technologies to deliver excellent network services and enrich the mobile telephony experience of subscribers.
