“Finally, we will bring you 4G. I know that you’ve waited a long time and I am as happy as you to say that we have received approval from the Government,” said GTT’s CEO Justin Nedd.

“Our 4G mobile network will enable you to connect to the internet much faster than ever before whether to browse, watch videos or movies, download music or shop online. All Smart phones sold by GTT are ready to experience the faster speeds.”

The approvals are subject to National Assembly approval ahead of the long-awaited passing of the Telecommunications Bill.
