Kasapa is causing serious shockwaves in Ghana’s mobile telecom industry and its only a matter of time before the cellco becomes a formidable force.

Within the past weeks, the premises of Kasapa’s main offices in Accra (Ghana) have been inundated with so many people queuing to buy a Kasapa handset which goes for only c100,000.

Kasapa has been offering a promotion towards the end of the year, with so many juicy offers including free calls within Ghana on Christmas and New Year days.

Ghanaians have responded rather positively to these promotions and are buying Kasapa handsets and lines in their numbers. This should see a drastic increase in the number of subscribers on Kasapa Telecom’s network. Added to the promotion is the fact that Kasapa has gone digital, using the CDMA technology. Much more value-added-services that had hitherto not been available on its old AMPS network are now available. This makes Kasapa even more attractive for the discerning individual.

Its only a matter of time, before Kasapa would poise as a real competition to Scancom Ltd (Areeba), Millicom Ltd (Mobitel) and GT’s Onetouch GSM. Perhaps, become the market leader. :)

  1. [...] I must add here that Mobitel has really given a stiff competition to Areeba Ghana. It took the arrival of Buzz GSM for mobile telephony to be revolutionized as we have it in Ghana, today. The recent stunts by Kasapa and Onetouch GSM makes the competition even more exciting. There is no hiding the fact that Mobitel is a force to reckon with, in the Ghana’s mobile telephony sub-sector.

    I’ve been asking this question and not getting satisfactory responses: How can I connect my laptop (a basic Dell Inspiron 1300) to the internet via a cellphone in Ghana and avoid landlines which are not available in my area? I saw a freind of mine-a Kasapa engineer do it when I was down in Ghana from Europe over the Christmas and would like to do the same next toime I down this Christmas. Please help.

  4. @ David Adjetey. :smile: You have obviously not been asking from the right source.
    You can connect to the Internet using two feasible methods here in Ghana. One is via GPRS technology being offered as mobile internet by Areeba as well as Tigo here in Ghana while the other method is over Kasapa’s CDMA2000 1x network. The mobile internet being run over Kasapa’s network is by Mobile2i.com, a service of NetAfrique dot com Ltd.

    Thanks for the information, David. I hope I have better connectivity. Allow me to bother you with another problem: I don’t use very complex mobile phones- a Nokia 6020 and a Sony Ericsson W810i. Connecting with the Sony will be no problem, but with the Nokia will I need a data cable?

  6. If you are talking about connecting your Nokia to a laptop, then you might need a compatible Nokia USB data cable. Consult your phone’s manual.

    Also, it is possible to connect your phone + computer via Bluetooth or Infrared, using the right adapter. :wink:

    I came across Odzangba Kafui Dake’s Blog, this afternoon. He is a Ghanaian blogger who is also a student in one of Ghana’s higher institutions of learning. From what I can glean from his blog, he is a Linux fan too.
    The blogger is not happy wit…

  16. vanessa says:

    I want to buy kasapa phone and i want to know the types on phones they have and the prices for each. kindly send answer to my e-mail ladygiftvan@yahoo.co.uk. thank you.

  17. Emanuel Adu says:

    Please could you kindly send me the list of Kasapa camera phones on sale at the market and their respective prices. I would be exceedingly happy if you honour this request promptly.

  18. Why not visit the nearest Kasapa centre, Emmanuel Adu? I am sure they will be glad to assist you with a choice of a camera phone. Good luck with that.

  19. Ekow says:

    why won’t Kasapa allow us to buy our own choice of phones? We don’t really mind them providing the phones for those who want their phone but they should give room to those of us who would want to get our own phones connected to the kasapa network.

  20. Offei says:

    Sup, Kasapa is a good network and a upgrade data access network very good for browsing the internet………but…….. why dont they have website? like kasapa.com.gh

  21. dmv says:

    Two things…

    Well Ebow the reason why you cannot use just any phone is because of the technological differences. GSM phones (those used by MTN, Tigo and One Touch)just won’t work with CDMA phones (Kasapa phones) and vice versa. :sad:

    Also I agree with you Offei, a website displaying the phones and price ranges would be great.

    Hi,

    Hope someone can give me some advice.. I am from Holland, and have a girlfriend in Ghana (accra) She is using Kasapa to access internet and windows Live Messenger, but she has a lot problems with making a connecting to the network. Also during chat the connection will go off often.

    I am a IT specialist myself, but does not know the type of hardware used as modem, or have some feeling by the technology used in Ghana.

    Can someone tell me if there are general connection problems using Kasapa in combination with a laptop and windows XP?
    Is there a support web site where the status of the network can be checked?

    Thanks in advance
    Rob
