Liberia's premier GSM company, Lonsetar Cell/MTN, yesterday launched a new brand of blackberry solution in Liberia, announcing that its investment in the country's telecommunication sector will hit at least US$30 million by the close of the year, and promised to provide more quality services.
The product allows carriers of the phone to use all features on it unlike other blackberry currently in the country on which all featured are not used.
Deputy Information Minister Norris Tweah officially launched the product and commended the company for its invaluable contributions to the rebuilding process of Liberia.
He said each time new CEOs of Lonestar/MTN are appointed to Liberia, they come with new innovations and products that make communications easier and better.
Tweah applauded the company's new CEO Tebogo Mogapi for the innovation, hoping that the new blackberry solution will revolutionize the telecommunications industry of Liberia.
CEO Mogapi expressed explicit optimism that the blackberry solution will keep people connected and enjoying communication as done in other countries.
He described the product as what “Liberians have been waiting for” and pledged the company's recommitment to working tirelessly in line with the government's development agenda to rebuild Liberia and improve the lives of the population.
Mogapi indicated that the company's long-term commitment to the Liberian people will remain unshakable, noting that the introduction and launch of the new product is a classical example to the commitment started by the company more than a decade ago.
Lonestar Cell/MTN, he asserted, would have invested at least US$30 million at the close of 2012 and disclosed that the company currently has about 179 locations around the country.
The Company, Mogapi promised, will continue to invest in the economic empowerment of Liberians and provide quality and innovative services that will contribute to transforming Liberians.
Scores of Government officials and dignitaries from the business community and the diplomatic corps graced the occasion which took place at the Chinese refurbished Golden Gate Hotel at the Samuel Kayon Doe complex in Paynesville outside the capital. Writes D. K. Sengbeh, 0886586531/
