Telecommunication giant, MTN Ghana is set to improve its network connectivity within some deprived communities in the Awutu Senya West constituency in the Central Region.
The beneficiary communities are Bonsuoku, Chochoe, Loye, Awutu Bontrase, and Papaasi- Adawukwa- Obempo.
This follows a request the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin made to the telecom giant in April 2021.
In his letter to MTN Ghana, Mr. Arhin explained that the move will help open up such communities to development opportunities.
“Whilst offering basic telephony connectivity services to these communities, I am confident that the extension of MTN services will help open up these communities to opportunities for the development of skills and knowledge, as well as the growth of businesses and the local economy,” Mr. Arhin said in his letter.
The telecommunication giant subsequently responded in the affirmative.
According to the biggest voice and data service provider in the country, it has carried out an analysis of the said areas and is ready to extend coverage to them.
“We wish to inform you that MTN has conducted further analysis of these communities and carried out optimization activities with marginal improvements observed in some areas.”
“However, there are plans to put up new sites to improve the network coverage in the communities [in question].”
