Millicom Ghana will invest $24 million in 3G network expansion, and expects to complete the first phase of the project within the next four months.

During the initial phase, 114 cell sites will be installed in the Greater Accra, Ashanti and Western regions, according to the company. The operators said that they will predominantly deploy the network expansion in urban locations to ease network congestion in high traffic and highly populated areas.

A further 161 cell sites will subsequently be added to Tigo’s network in the next couple of years, as the operator stated.

Ron Reddick, chief technical and information officer at Tigo, said: “With the increasing smartphone penetration and the rapid development of new services and applications, additional network investment and expansion works have become necessary.”
