The Minister of Communications, Professor Mike Oquaye announced this at the launch of Ghana's 50th anniversary of ICT Awards. The Indian Government and the African Union are sponsoring the project. The project will provide open access broadband connectivity nationwide. It is expected to complement the national fibre-optic network which when completed will link to the SAT-3 WASC line that will carry data, voice and internet services across the sub region to as far as Mali.
