This week, the Hola Browser, a browser with a peer-to-peer virtual private network (VPN) that is entirely free, launched in Ghana. This allows internet users in Ghana to freely and unrestrictedly access the world’s online information.
Its more than 259 million registered users may access almost any website and enjoy their favorite movies, TV episodes, games, and other content from more than 190 countries thanks to Hola, which is available across a broad range of platforms and devices.
Avi Raz Cohen, general manager of Hola, declares, “We believe in totally democratized access to the internet and all of the material available on it. “That holds true for Ghanaians just as much as it does for everybody else in the globe, whether they’re using home computers while traveling overseas or viewing stuff from other countries. As a result, we look forward to expanding our presence in Ghana and increasing the number of users we have there in one of Africa’s most dynamic and forward-thinking digital marketplaces.
Already home to a vibrant technology and startup sector, Ghana’s online population is poised to grow significantly in the near future. Currently at 53%, internet penetration in Ghana is expected to rise to more than 66% by 2026. Internet speeds in the country are increasing all the time too. According to Statista, average download speeds in Ghana increased from 2.3Mbps in 2017 to 11.24Mbps in 2022.
“Given the potential freedom available to both new and existing Ghanaian internet users thanks to those increased speeds, it’s critical that they are able to make the most of it,” says Raz Cohen. “That means giving them access to as much of the internet as possible, regardless of where they may be located. The internet has always had the ability to bring people together, but it can do that much better if it’s really open to all.”
Along with its innovative browser, Hola is also accessible in Freemium form as a Windows and MacOS software, a browser extension for all popular browsers, an app for Android and iOS, a console app, and apps for a variety of other smart devices, including smart TVs.
