President John Evans Atta Mills has given a strong warning to the

Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, Sherry Aryittey,and

Communication Minister Haruna Iddrisu to ensure that Nigerian

telecommunications giant Globacom begins full operations in Ghana

before the end of 2010.
The President warns the Environment and Communications Ministry to

remove all bottlenecks preventing Globacom from starting full

operations.
According to hard information available to Modernghana.com indicates

that, West African mobile giant GLOBACOM has threatened to withdraw

its operations in Ghana if some operative within the government

continue to sabotage them.
Investigation conducted by Modernghana.com has it that, Ministry of

Environment, Science and Technology and Ministry of Communication and

Management of MTN are the brain behind of this sabotage because

Globacom will make impact in the country if they allow them to operate

fully, especially with it undersea cable.
Glo was issued a license in 2008 and had initially scheduled to launch

GSM and WCDMA networks by end-2009.
Management of Globacom claims that its infrastructure has been

sabotaged, frequencies have been interfered with and its advertising

billboards vandalized and also suffered from a ban on the erection of

new mobile masts.
Ghana has five mobile operators: Zain, Vodafone, MTN, Millicom (tiGo)

and Kasapa.
The cable was expected to go live in 2009 with planned landing points

in Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Mauritania, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and

UK, but this cable is also yet to be operational.
