All of the licensed mobile phone network operators in Ghana are also ISPs
and can reach enterprise customers. Within Accra or a few other major
coastal cities, either by microwave rooftop/tower based links or their
terrestrial fiber. Should definitely be much faster and more economical
than satellite.

Interestingly if you look at BGP tables and AS-adjacencies for the major
Ghanian ISPs and telecoms, it is logically a suburb of London, which is
where most of the traffic in the recently built West African submarine
cables goes.
