Liberia’s National Telecommunications provider, LIBTELCO says it has completed feasibility work to extend services to the port City of Buchanan and Gbarnga in central Liberia next year.
The Managing Director of LIBTELCO, Ben Wolo, said it was their wish to extend services to the entire country, but the corporation needed to be self sustaining before realizing that.
LIBTELCO, Cellcom and Lonestar Cell, on November 19, hosted a group of visiting ICT and technical students from Stella Maris Polytechnic, Salvation Army Technical High School, Zion Academy High School and the YMAC Computer School.
The trips were geared toward climaxing the end of the ‘African ICT week’ organized by the Ministry of Postal Affairs. “We have installed several towers in and outside Monsterrado County, with one of this costing us US$10, 000,” Wolo noted.
Currently, the fix line service provider can be accessed in Monsterrado, Margibi (partly) and Bomi Counties, providing voice, data communication, high speed, services and has a control center with generator and battery power back-up for 24/7 operations.
