Among the various communication networks in Ghana, Kasapa Telecom Limited has realised the need for communication in the Kofi Annan International Peace – Keeping Centre (KAIPTC) and has decided to support the activities of the institution in peace – keeping.
It is in this regard that Kasapa Telecom Limited has donated 80 home phones worth about a 100 million cedis and an additional 10 million top – up cards in order to congratulate the institution for their job in training peace – keeping officers.
The Sales Manager of Kasapa Telecom Limited Mr Benjie Randolph Akushie, said that the Kasapa home phones would help the institution go about their normal activities and also help them communicate with people outside at affordable rates which would help control conflicts in disaster prone areas.
Mr Akushie explained that unlike other communication networks that use GSM, Kasapa uses Code Division Multiple Access invented by the American Army which makes it difficult for anyone to track or get access to any information between two parties.
He, however, added that Kasapa home phones could be connected to a computer to get access to the internet in order to provide easy and convenient communication facility especially to students and participants who are offered opportunities to avail themselves.
Mr Akushie stressed that Kasapa has covered 7 regions and said Kasapa users would not experience any break in communication aside having cheaper rating system as compared to other networks.
“One of the greatest achievements of Kasapa is that it has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange making it the highest quality network in Ghana” he said.
The Sales Manager urged Ghanaians to patronise Kasapa phones since it is affordable to use and a subscriber can transfer credit to another subscriber to enhance communication between people.
The Deputy Commandant of the KAIPTC, Core Albert B. Addisson lauded Kasapa Telecom for taking the initiative to donate home phones to be fitted in all the residential rooms of the centre to help them in their activities and appealed to others to emulate their example.
