All systems go for Glo Ghana

georgeandahOperator makes a comeback after being fined.

Over one million Ghanaians who have reserved numbers on the Glo network will finally be able to start making calls today, as the operator has overcome a three-year launch delay.

Glo’s Ghana launch comes just days after the country’s National Communication Authority (NCA) last week fined the company $200,000 for its failure to launch after the telco was awarded a licence in 2008. The telco was also fined for not being able to cover at least six regions in the country by 2010.

Despite Glo’s struggling start, its company representatives say they have aims to take a substantial slice of the West African nation’s mobile market share

Glo representatives said that 1.5 million people had already reserved numbers on the network, which could accommodate up to at least 10 million customers.

Around 94% of Ghana’s 24 million people own a mobile phone, according to Basis Research Ltd.

“One out of every two Ghanaian can be on the Glo network without it getting congested,” Glo Ghana chief operating officer (COO), George Andah was quoted in the Joy online news website.

Andah has further said that the company has 500 customer care staff at 25 GloWorld stores across the country.
