She said these were in the areas of education and health infrastructure, provision of water and sanitation facilities, skills development and capacity building.

Mr. Dickson Amoung-Yam, Technical Manager, complained about the growing theft of batteries at the company’s cell sites.

Mr. Amoung-Yam told the forum that, for last year alone, the company recorded 698 fiber cuts, resulting in the disruption of services to customers.

For this, year, there had already been 494 such cuts, he added.

It was also going to deploy seven new SMART solution cell sites to ensure efficiency in its services.
