Cabinet has approved an 82.4 million dollar Digital Migration contract to be executed by a Ghanaian company K-NET Limited.
The migration to digital terrestrial television (DTT) will guarantee multiple TV channels, clearer pictures, better sound quality and offer more opportunities for advertisers and broadcasters.
[contextly_sidebar id=”upulqDmPO78IODPfuSy9kuGkTxQ5FZU2″]K-NET is expected to complete the entire migration process in 9 months as the project is divided into 3 phases.
Cabinet, at a previous sitting, approved the auctioning of spectrums to be freed from the migration to pay for the cost of the digital migration.
KNET’s 82.4 million dollar contract sum is 13 million dollar cheaper than the 95 million dollar Star Times contract, which was terminated for non-performance.
Founded in 1996, K-NET is a wholly Ghanaian owned telecoms infrastructure company providing world-class telecoms services comparable to international best standards.
With 100% network coverage in Ghana and footprints across sub-Saharan Africa, the Ghanaian company is also the major provider of connectivity services to over 50 radio stations and 30 TV channels in Ghana.
K-NET owns the biggest ISP infrastructure supporting Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), Direct -to-Home TV (DTH) and Telecoms.
