US$300 million nationwide wi-fi and smart city project to be launched in Ghana

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed by Ghanaian Celltel Networks, Roberta Annan Consulting (RAC), and the Chinese government’s international co-operation company (CEIEC) to collaborate on a Ghana Smart Cities project branded ArisCel that would enable nationwide wi-fi. The project is focused on leveraging the wi-fi network for the provision of affordable nationwide access to citizens that will align with the delivery of paperless services at government institutions.
