MainOne “Feel The Impact” broadband promo for Accra Ghana
MainOne Cable Company is set to launch a free broadband promo from 14th to 26th March inside Accra Mall, in collaboration with a local partner BusyInternet. The promo is similar to what they unleashed in The Palms Mall Lekki Nigeria in December 2010.
The promo is meant to bring the high-speed experience possible via MainOne, directly to end-users. Though MainOne does not sell internet bandwidth directly to end-users, the promo intends to sensitize people so they in turn can pressurize their Internet Service Provider (ISP) to switch to MainOne. Already, a few ISPs use MainOne in Ghana: Teledata ICT, BusyInternet, Ecoband Networks.
Visitors to the Accra Shopping Mall with Wi-Fi enabled devices (laptops, tablet PCs, smartphones) would be able to access the internet and enjoy superfast surfing within the mall.
Ghana News Agency (GNA) quotes MainOne’s country manager Mr Joseph Odoi as saying:
“MOCC provides an answer to the increasing yearnings of Ghanaians for a fast, reliable and affordable broadband internet connection. ‘The Feel the Impact’ promotion reflects our commitment to ensure that Ghanaians tap into the benefits of broadband internet revolution offered by the company…”
The MainOne cable is an undersea fibre optics cable system stretching from Portugal to Nigeria with a landing in Ghana. Other landings are planned for more West African countries, and there are plans to extend the cable system to South Africa. MainOne competes with SAT3 and glo-1 in West Africa.
