MTN office in Osu, Accra

MTN office in Osu, Accra

MTN Ghana announced the launch of their 3.5G network in January 2009. I have noticed that their 3.5G coverage in Accra is patchy but even where there is coverage, I have not been able to connect. I search manually for the 3.5G network and select it but get an error message: “Access not allowed”.

Calls to the customer service did not help much and so I headed to their special 3.5G booth in from of their Osu office. A gentleman there told me it was not open to the public yet. When I asked about the public announcement in January, he stated that was only a “soft launch” and access should be open to the public later this week.
