Globacom's Ghana subsidiary, Glo Mobile has delayed its already very late network launch again, citing unspecified "logistics issues" beyond its control.
The network was due to be switched on for consumers today, and the delay came at the vert last minute.
Glo Mobile spokesman, Bode Opeseitan told MyJoyOnline that the rescheduling of the launch date had nothing to do with competition, but was based on Glo's own strategy.
He said "technically we are ready - you can receive call on our network now and no one wants to launch Glo more than we do but the decision to reschedule is strategic".
Mr. Opeseitan did not however state whether the launch would still be this month or next.
The company received its mobile license in June 2008 and has been under pressure from the regulator to launch its services. The company has in the past blamed its problems in securing planning permission for its base stations.
