Vodafone commits to ensuring infrastructure security for network speed
Vodafone Ghana has reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring the security of its infrastructure to enable customers to experience an enhanced network speed and facilitate improved services.
This comes at a time when the company has introduced its 4G+, a major upgrade to Vodafone Ghana’s existing 4G technology.
In a release issued by the company it said, Mathias Duayin and Albert Edor, two individuals arrested on charges of cable theft in Akosombo, have been found guilty and each sentenced to a prison term of seven years by the Odumase Krobo Circuit Court.
According to the release, the theft involving cables with a combined length of 2,600 metres caused a staggering GH₵798,000.00 loss, affecting thousands of customers in the region.
The Director of Legal and External Affairs at Vodafone Ghana, Preba Greenstreet, expressed her gratitude for the swift resolution of the matter, adding that “we are grateful for the swift action of the Akosombo police and the Odumase Krobo Circuit Court. Cable theft is a pressing concern, and our collaboration with law enforcement agencies will continue to address and mitigate its repercussions.”
The release said the theft of such cables disrupts telecommunication services, posing challenges for businesses and residents reliant on consistent connectivity.
“As Vodafone Ghana continues to expand its operations, with the recent introduction of 4G+, safeguarding assets remains a top priority.
Proving its commitment to ensuring that as many Ghanaians as possible can tap into this enhanced speed, Vodafone is also rolling out a device financing scheme, where customers can purchase 4G+ compatible phones from Vodafone’s retail outlets, paying for them in manageable instalments. These phones come bundled with 2.5GB of free data every month for 12 months,” it said.
It added that the swift sentencing of the cable thieves not only underscores the importance of safeguarding critical infrastructure but also highlights the commitment of both law enforcement and corporate entities like Vodafone Ghana in ensuring a secure and progressive digital future for all Ghanaians.
