MTN Ghana has said it is committed to investing in new technology upgrades that will give Ghanaians a good experience through their mobile subscription.

In a goodwill message to the Government of Ghana and Ghanaians on the country’s 59th Independence Day anniversary, which fell on Sunday March 6, MTN Ghana said: “MTN pledges to continuously invest in new technologies and upgrades that will ensure that access to 2G, 3G, 4G, fibre and an IP-based network remains the path to endless opportunities for individuals and businesses.

“In pursuing the path of digital inclusiveness, we will also focus on expanding our Mobile Money services in order to contribute to the achievement of a cashlite economy.

“At the heart of our drive for digital transformation in Ghana is our commitment to promote socio-economic development of Ghanaians, especially in the areas of Education, Health and Economic Empowerment,” the statement signed by Corporate Services Executive Cynthia Lumor added.

MTN said it was “honoured to be a key player in this growth progression with network investments of over USD 2.5 billion that keep 16 million subscribers connected, over 500,000 jobs created through our supply chain and over GHS21 million in Corporate Social Investments.”

“These and our direct and indirect contributions in taxes and levies have immensely contributed to Ghana’s economic development.

“On the occasion of Ghana’s 59th independence anniversary, MTN wishes to assure Ghanaians that we remain steadfast in our commitment to be an important part of Ghana’s ongoing development efforts and digital objectives,” the statement said, adding: “The journey of Ghana’s nationhood has been characterised by growth and development milestones that demonstrate the country’s strengths. As the first nation in sub-Saharan Africa to attain independence, Ghana has also been a trail blazer in charting a technological course to development.”
