The iBurst wireless broadband system is now available in Ghana after Infinite Stream Ghana Ltd recently launched the service in collaboration with BusyInternet. South African iBurst users are now able to roam in Ghana and vice versa.

ArrayComm, the world leader in smart antenna technologies, is the developer and patent holder of the iBurst broadband wireless system sold globally by licensees. iBurst is currently available in Ghana, South Africa, Australia, Kenya and Azerbaijan.

“iBurst South Africa is thrilled that a third African country now has access to a fourth generation wireless technology with the potential to uplift communities by boosting economic growth,” said Thami Mtshali, CEO of iBurst SA.

iBurst is unique because it optimizes the use of bandwidth with the help of smart antennae. It offers the speed of DSL in a mobile environment, exceptional reliability and an IP base allowing a network to be established quickly and affordably.

“Over the last decade we have watched the rise and fall of copper promises. African countries see the potential of broadband and are desperately looking for other ways to obtain reliable, high-speed Internet access without resorting to miles of expensive copper cables. Ghana obviously realized that the decision to go the iBurst wireless route would allow an alternative broadband provider to be up and running as quickly as possible,” said Mr Mtshali.

iBurst will initially only be available in Ghana’s capital city of Accra. The new service is available in three contract packages and a prepaid version where subscribers pay an hourly rate with no data cap.

Coverage currently includes metropolitan Accra (Osu, Airport area, Kaneshie, Ring Road Central, Accra Central). The company hopes to extend coverage to other parts of Accra and also to other cities in Ghana in the near future. Further details are available on
