In partnership with Vodafone Ghana,  Express Wi-Fi has launched in Ghana. Express Wi-Fi is a Facebook initiative (under internet.org) which aims to provide internet connectivity to underserved locations around the world.

Before launching in Ghana, the service had previously launched in Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Indonesia and India, partnering with local internet providers and mobile operators.

In Ghana, through its partnership with Vodafone, hotspots have already reportedly been deployed in a few areas within Accra, including Nima, Maamobi, Pigfarm, Jamestown and Abossey Okai.

According to reports, 100 megabytes of data on the service costs GH₵ 1.00  ($0.19) while 1 gigabyte costs GH₵ 5.00 ($0.95).

Speaking at the launch of Express Wi-Fi in Ghana, Yolanda Cuba, Vodafone Ghana CEO said:

“It is necessary for everyone no matter his or her background to connect to industrial and digital revolution especially in the current world where technology dominates.”

She also adds that the company is committed to making everyone in Ghana to the “digital world”.
