Company Overview

Surfline is a wireless broadband and technology provider operating in Ghana. The company was founded in 2011 with the National Communications Authority (NCA) awarding Surfline a Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) license the following year.

Two years later the company launched Ghana's first 4G LTE network (and Africa's largest at the time) in August 2014 over the B7 (2600 MHz) band with theoretical peak data rates of 100 Mbps possible. No 2G or 3G mobile services are offered by the company.

Surfline Communications was shut down in October 2018 by the debt management and tax compliance enforcement unit of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA). The move comes after Surfline failed to pay a tax default of GHS37.3 million (USD7.7 million) between 2015 and 2017.
