Vodafone's Ghana subsidiary says that it is working on a major network upgrade that will see over 400 new base stations deployed across the country by the end of March 2014.
The network upgrade started last November, and is said to be costing some GH$55 million (USD33 million).
In addition to new base stations, the investment will also see upgrades to the core network.
The Chief Technology Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Patricia Obo-Nai said "We've made a conscious decision to invest not just in our brand and market, but to build a network that is reliable, sound and stable. We are going to make sure that we are consistently reliable, and provide the best service."
Vodafone Group owns 70% of the company, with the rest owned by the government.
