Ghana’s Internet Connectivity on the Rise

Ghana’s internet connectivity has been seeing a steady rise because of their collaboration between Ecoband Networks and Workonline Communications.

Ghana’s Internet connectivity has received a massive boost with collaboration from Ecoband Networks and Workonline Communications, which are one of the largest IP transit providers in Africa.

“West Africa’s demand for faster, cheaper, and better access to quality content has grown exponentially of late. The past year of lockdowns and the change in work style has increased the need for high-quality Internet in the country. This being said, the future for West Africa looks bright as more datacentres and content networks are investing in Ghana. Locally served content also assists in the reduction of the cost of Internet services, and in so doing, positively impacts economic growth. Notably, PAIX operates Ghana’s leading carrier-neutral datacentre, with the highest concentration of networks and is coincidentally where the Workonline and Ecoband networks meet.”

Ecoband Networks and Workonline Communications in a Statement

Workonline has offered high capacity, low-latency, and high stability IP transit with connectivity up to 100Gbps across sub-Saharan Africa. Workonline’s pan-African network allows for the local traffic to find an optimal path when delivering traffic outside the continent. Ecoband’s customers now have access to additional routes in Africa as well. These rewards however cover the entire Ecoband network including Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Togo.

“Our drive is to find ways of continually improving the Internet ecosystem in West Africa. In delivering a world-class quality experience, Ecoband carefully selects providers that can deliver the very best in connectivity solutions. Teaming up with Workonline has opened the door to improved access and experience for our customers, whilst driving down costs. Workonline’s innovative approach to a symbiotic business model will help us continue to grow and improve the African Internet ecosystem together.”

Eric Gbeho, Chief Executive Officer, Ecoband

“West Africa, and indeed Ghana, is an important focus for us to extend the reach of our network and support our mission of further developing a robust pan-African Internet ecosystem. We’re pleased to have partnered with a pivotal player like Ecoband to help us achieve this.”
