Internet service giant, iBurst Africa is expanding its operations in Ghana after enjoying high patronage in the country.

The company which provides a wide-area mobile broadband technology offers unique combination of high speed, wide range and high base station capacity.

The fourth generation wireless technology has been available in Ghana since 2007.

However, the company has now extended its coverage to Tema, Spintex, Airport, McCarthy Hill, Tantra Hill, Trust Towers and Legon. This development will enable fast and efficient connectivity for current and potential clients.

Meanwhile, the company will officially launch its operations today at the iBurst Africa offices in Accra, which event will be graced by top business and government leaders as well as current and potential customers.

Dr Benjamin Aggrey Ntim, Minister of Communications will address the delegates while King Tackie-Tawiah III, the Ga Mantse unveils the new customer service centre.

The launch will also celebrate the reveal of a new technology, the iBlink 2Mb/s modem which is yet to be launched anywhere in the world.

The Chairman of iBurst Africa in Ghana, Isaac Osei – Agyemang says the fact that Ghana is the first country in which this modem will be launched underpins how seriously the company takes the Ghanaian market.

The iBlink modem will offer twice the throughput of 1Mb/s modems currently available in Ghana.

He says a number of products have been lined up to be launched on the Ghanaian market to give subscribers fast and efficient internet connectivity.

The internet service provider already has operations in South Africa and is expanding to Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia this year.

To date, iBurst Africa has invested $4 million into Ghana to ensure superior coverage and speed in Accra.
