Ghana is due to have a nationwide WiMax coverage. Internet Ghana will use Navini Network’s Ripwave MX solution with smart WiMAX to build the first 802.16e software upgradeable network in the African country. “With high consumer demand, poor DSL access and long customer connection times Ghana is absolutely ready for mass market, rapid install, broadband wireless services. We will be first to market across the whole of Ghana, beginning in the capital Accra followed by the regional capitals and commercial towns,” Internet Ghana CEO Leslie Tamakloe said. The first phase of deployment will cover the capital city of Accra and ten other cities including Tamale, Kumasi and Tema.
