MainOne completes new PoP in Central Business District

MainOne, West Africa’s leading communications and data solutions provider, has announced the completion of a new point-of-presence (PoP) in Accra’s Central Business District (CBD), extending the company’s reach to the city’s commercial hub.

The new PoP is targeted at enterprises within the Central Business District and its environs, as an assurance of MainOne’s commitment to provide businesses with robust ICT services and infrastructure.

Describing the impact that MainOne’s communication service solutions would bring to businesses within the area, the General Manager of MainOne Ghana, Angelo Govina, stressed that the new PoP would enhance the company’s ability to deliver best-in-class connectivity and value-added services.

He reiterated MainOne’s commitment to the future growth of its customers, through continued expansion of its network infrastructure, and added that the new PoP would directly connect enterprises and corporate organisations to enormous opportunities for improved productivity and efficiency.

“MainOne’s continued desire to provide impeccable service experience to enterprises in Ghana underscores the company’s dedication to infrastructure deployment in strategic locations. This is part of our expansion drive aimed at giving our customers the edge,” he said.

The addition of the CBD branch to existing ones at Cable Station --- Nungua, Spintex Road, and Roman Ridge—coupled with a host of partners’ infrastructure will enable the company to deliver on its product and solutions mix including, connectivity, enterprise voice solutions, data center services and bundled solutions to businesses in the country.

Elaborating on the company’s overarching strategy, Kazeem Oladepo, Regional Business Executive, stated; “MainOne’s vision is poised to be the leader in the drive for a connected West Africa, to accelerate the penetration of reliable and affordable broadband internet services, which supports socio-economic development in the sub-region.”

“We are investing significantly in distributing more of our broadband capacity across Accra, a major business hub of Ghana, where demand for services is growing exponentially. Our plan is to continue to invest in infrastructure that will enable us extend our reliable connectivity service across other areas in the country.

In areas where we do not have our fiber coverage, we continue to partner with best-in-class infrastructure providers to connect our customers to broadband and-value added services.

This expansion and partnership is part of our strategy and commitment towards assisting Ghanaian businesses in their quest for improved productivity and efficiency through dedicated and reliable connectivity services, as well as accelerating the rate of broadband penetration across Ghana,’’ he said.

Since 2009, MainOne has invested over US$300million in ICT infrastructure in West Africa as part of its commitment to deepening internet access across the region. The Company currently provides services to clients including large telcos, ISPs and enterprises in eight countries across West Africa.
