One of Africa’s leading communications and data solutions provider, MainOne, has built a new telecommunications point of presence (PoP) in Tema to serve the manufacturing, shipping and other businesses in the country’s major industrial hub.

The PoP is designed to provide customers in Tema and its surrounding communities with robust Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services together with a bouquet of communications services solutions. 

MainOne’s Business Executive Director for West Africa, Mr Kazeem Oladepo, made this known at a business breakfast meeting organised by the company at Tema.

The company used the event to explain its business activities to the over 40 companies that attended the event and also interacted with them on how best it could provide them with total ICT and data management solutions to enhance their operations.

“It is to explain our service delivery experience and quality with enterprises in the Tema metropolis. This is in addition to showcasing the company’s robust product and solutions mix, including connectivity, enterprise voice, data centre services and unified communications solutions, to the enterprise businesses in Ghana,’’ Mr Oladepo said.


Mr Oladepo explained that the PoP would enhance MainOne’s ability to deliver first-class connectivity and value-added service in the Tema area and further reiterated the company’s commitment in providing top-notch services to its clients.

“The Tema PoP will serve enterprises and corporate clients directly from MainOne PoP which is directly linked to the MainOne international connectivity network through the company’s proprietary fibre backhaul infrastructure,’’ he said. 

With regard to the company’s strategy in Ghana, Mr Oladepo stated that MainOne would accelerate the penetration of reliable and affordable broadband internet services to support socio-economic development in the country.

“We are investing significantly in the distribution of our capacity within Tema, a major business district in Ghana, where demand for connectivity and other value-added services is growing, he added.
