MTN users to experience disruptions in data services on Saturday

Telecommunications giant, MTN Ghana says it will today February 1 undertake a maintenance on its network to enhance the quality of its data services.

According to a statement issued by the company, there will be intermittent disruptions to data services between 12:00am midnight to 1:00am.

“This activity will enhance the quality of our data services and MTN sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience,” the statement noted.

Last month, subscribers of the MTN faced disruptions with regards to mobile data connectivity across Ghana and many areas in West Africa as a result of a double undersea fibre optic cable cut in its network.

Ghana was not the only country affected by the fibre cable cut as the West Africa Cable System (WACS), which is in the Atlantic Ocean, connects many other African countries to Europe.

The Consumer Rights Protection Agency suggested MTN compensate its subscribers for the service disruptions.
