Lynk Global has signed their second commercial contract with Telecel Group in Africa to provide services to Vodafone Ghana’s subscribers. This new contract will provide mobile coverage to 100 per cent of Ghana’s population of 31 million inhabitants using Lynk’s ;cell-towers-in-space; system.

Lynk’s cell towers in space will enable Telecel Group to offer ubiquitous geographic coverage to more than six million Vodafone Ghana subscribers and will be used for extending rural coverage, including Maritime Economic Zone, as a backup to ensure service resilience, continuity of IOT devices, and as a terrestrial tower replacement for under-performing (economical or technical) towers.

Following the takeover of its majority shares by Telecel Group, Vodafone Ghana has leveraged the partnership between Lynk and Telecel Group to provide innovative services and widespread mobile coverage across Ghana’s rural areas.

“This agreement extends Lynk’s leadership in the satellite-direct-to-standard-phone category in Africa and is an important milestone as interest in the category continues to heat up. Lynk remains the only patented, proven and commercially-licensed company for satellite-direct-to-standard-phone technology anywhere in the world,” said Charles Miller, CEO of Lynk

“We are excited at the possibilities this partnership brings to the country. It provides the unique opportunity to connect everyone everywhere and accelerates the benefits that connectivity offers in health, education, and job creation, especially for our women and youth,” added Patricia Obo-Nai, CEO of Vodafone Ghana.

Lynk claims to be the world’s only patented, proven, and commercially-licensed satellite-direct-to-standard-mobile-phone system. Lynk is currently testing satellite direct-to-standard-mobile-phone services in more than a dozen countries.
