MTN Ghana has announced it has taken construction firm Hisense Son Electronic Ltd and Zuleah Esifu to court for damaging its fibre cables.
In a statement, Cynthia Lumor, corporate services executive for MTN Ghana, said the network is the two companies for damaging its fibre cables, which has had a negative effect on service quality.
She said the network is ready to step up its efforts to curtail the problem, which is on the increase in spite of numerous efforts to tackle it in partnership with stakeholders.
“We have been educating the public against these acts for several years now; however every year the number of fibre cuts continues to grow,” she said.
Lumor said the network has invested heavily in fibre-optic technology to increase capacity and speed and ensure a distinct experience for MTN customers using voice or data services.
HumanIPO reported yesterday Airtel Ghana had also expressed concern over the rise in fibre optic cable cuts in the country, especially in the western region.
