Cellcom GSM Company in collaboration with the Liberian Government has launched a new technology service known as the Fiber Cable for commercial purposes in the country. Addressing a news conference over the weekend in Monrovia, Cellcom Chief Communication Strategist, Dr. Kimmie Weeks, said the new technology is a boost to the country's communication sector.
Dr. Weeks said the fiber cable would enable the company to graduate from solely depending on satellite for communication purposes to fully deploring its 4G network for speed and accuracy. With the launch of the fiber cable, he assured that it would greatly upgrade the speed of cell phones and internet modem connection from 21 megabyte per second to 42 megabyte per second.
According to him, the new technology would also afford students, especially those doing online courses to do research at an affordable cost. The Cellcom Chief Communication Strategist disclosed that the new technology would be used by students, organizations, government institutions, commercial institutions and ordinary citizens to conduct live video conference in an accurate manner.
"With the new fiber cable, Liberia will be able to open its doors to the possibility of call centers with other countries around the world for business transactions. This technology Cellcom believes would boost the country's economy," the Cellcom Chief Communication Strategist further disclosed.
He described the new technology service as an opportunity for the opening of more call centers, which would translate into the provision of jobs and revenue generation for the country. Among other things, he added that Cellcom remains committed and determined to working in collaboration with government of Liberia in providing the needed basic social services to the citizenry.
