She said as part of the government’s plans to digitize the whole country, her ministry is very determined to set up a robust rural network that will stand the test of time.“About half, 1,010 have been built and about half of those have been connected. So, we are working on the challenges and we are sure that by the end of this year, all the 2,016 are built and connected for up to 5 million citizens who do not have access to internet to also utilise data and high-speed voice services for all their online interactions to be part of the digital revolution that’s unfolding,” Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful stated.The Minister also assured those in standby communities whose projects are completed waiting to be commissioned, to be patient.Government extends voice and data connectivity to two communities in Savannah RegionThese two communities (Mognori and Sumpini) have over the years, been battling with poor quality voice and data service forcing residents to move to other locations including climbing trees to make calls.The Chief of Mognori, Assan Sakara, commended the Ministry for the initiative.He said the presence of the facility would improve the living condition of his people and spread development.
