Surfline Communications Chooses Huawei Technologies to Bring High-Speed Internet Access to Millions

Barcelona, Spain – Surfline Communications announced plans to expand their award-winning 4G LTE network to cover all regions in Ghana with Huawei Technologies. After a grueling evaluation process, Huawei emerged as the winning vendor for expansion due in part to their success as a worldwide market leader on frequency division duplex (FDD). The expansion will cover major cities such as Takoradi, Kumasi, Cape Coast, Tamale and Ho, and include all key municipalities within the data-hungry country. Once completed Surfline will boast 700+ cell sites, making it one of the world’s largest independent LTE networks, an amazing feat for the country’s only telecommunications network that is wholly owned by Ghanaians.

The announcement follows Surfline’s extremely successful launch last August, which saw Surfline raise the bar on both new and existing operators through their commitment to bring international standards to Ghana by introducing sophisticated experiential stores, superior customer service and incomparable data speeds. Surfline has experienced tremendous growth in its customer base making them a force to be reckoned with within the competitive marketplace. In 2014, Surfline was nominated for “Breakthrough LTE Entrant” at AfricaCom in South Africa and won “Top Emerging Brand” at the Top Brands Awards in Ghana.
