Telephone subscribers in the Upper West Region owe Ghana Telecom (GT) 1.5 billion cedis (150,000 GH cedis) whose recovery is urgently required to ensure that the region gets the best of services and coverage of the new products that are being introduced by the company.
Officials of GT said this to newsmen at Wa at the launch of Company’s Broadband 4U service, a new product designed by the company to offer high-speed Internet access to its clients through a fixed phone line.
Alhaji Issahaku Alhassan, Upper West Regional Deputy Coordinating Director who launched the facility urged prospective subscribers not to use the facility to engage in fraud and other cyber crimes.
Development in modern society, he said, was technology based and therefore the crave for Internet facilities should be used to acquire knowledge and skills in all spheres for advancement.
He appealed to GT to extend the facility to other districts in the region.
Mr Dela Kayi, Media Manager for Fixed Networks Services of the Company, said the new product was part of GT vision to bring Internet services to schools, churches, and communities to enable them access a wide range of resources that could have positive impact on their lives.
He said it has been designed to take care of a broad spectrum of activities at various service levels and packaged to meet specific needs such as revitalization of E commerce, information about government policies, attracting new industries and creating new jobs.
Mr Emmanuel Ayettey, Upper West Regional Manager of GT, said subscribers to the new product who have no fixed telephone lines would have them installed without any cost to them.
