The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has announced the admission of C-Squared Ghana Ltd, ComSys Ghana Ltd and Huawei Ghana to the chamber.
They join two other infrastructure companies – American Tower Corporation and Helios Towers – as well as three multinational mobile network operators (MNOs) – MTN, Vodafone, Airtel/Tigo – who are the foundation members of the Chamber established in 2010.
A statement issued by the Chamber said Ms. Estelle Akofio Sowah, Country Manager of C-Squared; Mr. Jonathan Lamptey, the CEO of ComSys and Tommy Zhou, CEO of Huawei Ghana will serve on the Governing Council of the Chamber together with their respective alternates.
“The Chamber’s primary objective is to support the overall development of the telecommunications and technology industry in Ghana through institutional partnerships and expert contribution to policy, regulation, legislation and public advocacy.
“C-Squared and Comsys currently enables MNOs and ISPs to provide high-quality broadband at lower costs through shared infrastructure such as metro fiber, Wi-Fi networks, VSAT services and many more. Huawei is equally a leading global provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices to MNOs and individuals”, said the statement.
The Chamber also announced the exit of Eaton Towers Ghana from its association at the end of June 2020, following its acquisition by American Tower Corporation (ATC) who is already a member of the Chamber.
Dr. Ing. Kenneth Ashigbey, CEO of the Chamber said “the addition of three major players into the Chamber at this time, represents the industry commitment to identify new ways of collaborating without sacrificing competition for the utmost good of the sector.”
“We look forward to working with the new entrants as well as our current members to advance the next generation of connectivity and digital services for the entire benefit of the ecosystem and Ghana”, said Dr. Ashigbey.
