SkyFi, an ultramodern high speed internet service, which comes at very affordable prices, has been launched in Ghana to spark excitement among internet users in the country.
SkyFi has a reputation of offering WiFi internet services that are tailor-made to suit each client, be it for public, home or business purposes.
Kobina Richardson, Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of E-Connecta, commenting on the facility, said an increasing number of individuals, businesses and institutions are going to find it more challenging to cope without access to a good and reliable internet because internet use is becoming an unavoidable necessity.
He explained that despite this demand for consistent and reliable internet, the internet market in Ghana still lacks requisite innovation needed by the consumer to take advantage of the potentials and technological benefits available.
Mr. Richardson said SkyFi has identified the internet market as an entry point in providing a wide range of affordable, consistent and reliable internet services to the Ghanaian consumer.
He said with the WiFi Hotspot service, SkyFi has been designed and deployed to provide very cheap and reliable internet access to the Ghanaian consumer to improve their standard of living.
“We hope to offer high speed Wi-Fi services with an integrated payment system (mobile money, card payment etc) to ensure access to all…We commend the government on such an initiative and we hope to see more of such mutually beneficial partnerships in the future to advance Ghana’s economic development,” Mr. Kobina Richardson added.
He insisted that SkyFi offers WiFi solutions which are affordable and can be tailored for specific needs and has smart in house developers who are tasked to build WiFi Hotspot solutions for business and homes.
Launching the new facility, Edward Omane Boamah, Minister of Communications, commended E-Connnecta and SkyFi.
The Minister said government is committed to collaborating with internet service providers to offer high-speed internet at very affordable prices and good quality for the benefit of everybody, irrespective of their location.
The first phase of the internet service covers some 10 areas within the Greater Accra Region, including the 37 Military Hospital and Lorry Station , Accra Technical University, Airport, Burma Camp, Korle-Bu, University of Professional Studies, Osu, Tema Lorry Station, Makola, and the University of Development Studies in Tamale.
Skyfi Wi-Fi service will extend its coverage to other parts of the country with an increased focus on tertiary institutions.
