Dr Yaw Akoto, CEO, Surfline
Surfline has officially launched Ghana’s first 4G LTE network in Accra and Tema, giving both consumers and businesses internet speeds that are 10 times faster than 3G services currently on offer.
Marking the historic occasion, Surfline, the only telecoms company wholly owned by Ghanaians, announced free devices and double bonus for life for all new customers.
Less than 20 percent of Ghanaians currently use the internet; a statistic not lost on Surfline, which believes this represents an opportunity to inspire businesses, families and students to embrace the internet and achieve and experience much more in less time.
Some benefits of using the Surfline 4G LTE service are that 100mb files can be downloaded in seconds, films that take four hours to download can be downloaded in just 15 minutes, streaming music and standard videos takes less than a second to buffer and 20mb gamescan be downloaded in 25 seconds.
Dr Yaw Akoto, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Surfline Limited said: ‘Ghanaians are disillusioned with the internet services that are currently on offer because they have not experienced what was promised. Surfline’s 4G LTE service has been created with a single-minded focus on data, which means our network quality will not be compromised. With our service, customers are always guaranteed a 4G LTE service and nothing less.’
‘As Ghanaians ourselves, we believe that people living and working in Ghana deserve the best. Across the world, people are enjoying super-fast internet speeds powered by 4G LTE and Surfline is proud to bring this into Ghana for the first time; and for Ghanaians to experience the difference this brings,’ said Dr Yaw Akoto.
He also revealed that Surfline would continue its network rollout across Ghana in the coming months.
Surfline has also unveiled a matchless shopping experience at its flagship shop in Osu (near Firefly) and has also opened further shops in Accra at East Legon (American House), where customers can experience and purchase the latest 4G LTE-enabled devices, SIM cards and top-up vouchers.
Surfline kiosks have also been established across Accra and Tema, where customers can purchase Surfline SIM cards and top-up vouchers.
A zero-rated website, www.surflinegh.com , has also been introduced, where customers can access all the information they need on Surfline’s services, buy data packages and top-up credit on their accounts with debit cards.
Surfline’s world-class 4G LTE network was developed and is supported by global partners, including IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Tech Mahindra and Alcatel-Lucent.
It is the first mobile telecoms operator to pioneer an LTE network in Ghana.
