Having previously partnered with submarine cable company, MainOne, Tizeti Network Limited has announced that it would be extending the partnership as part of its expansion plans to increase broadband accessibility outside Nigeria.
Tizeti, which is one of the fastest-growing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Nigeria, disclosed that it would launch GhanaWifi.com, a service which will operate solar-powered WiFi Towers across Ghana.
