NaTCA’s DG Amara Brewah enables transition to 5G internet connectivity

Amara Brewah, the Director-General of the National Telecommunications Authority (NaTCA), has overseen a major transition to 5G internet connectivity in Sierra Leone. This significant transformation has been attributed to his visionary leadership and the proactive collaborative environment he has fostered at NaTCA.

Within three months, the two leading mobile operators, Orange and Africell, have integrated 5G, which is the fastest internet speed available globally. This rapid integration is a remarkable step toward embracing the digital age and has the potential to boost economic growth, improve education, healthcare, and governance, and connect people like never before.

The positive advancements in the quality of internet service promises to deliver value that would make a reasonable increase in tariff costs acceptable. The general sentiment is optimistic about the dawn of 5G in Sierra Leone, which promises to usher in an era of heightened connectivity, creativity, and innovation.

Primarily, 5G will enable the development of new applications and services that are not possible with current 4G networks. This includes things like virtual reality, augmented reality, and real-time video streaming. These applications have the potential to revolutionize education, healthcare, and other industries.

5G will also make it possible for more people to connect to the internet. This is especially important in rural areas where internet access is currently limited. With 5G, people in these areas will be able to access the same online resources and services as people in urban areas.

Overall, the introduction of 5G in Sierra Leone is a positive development that has the potential to improve the lives of many people.
