Need fixer in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali

He everyone, I’m looking for info about fixer and Internet connections for transmission,… Is there anyone who could recommend me a good fixer for those countries: Ghana, Burkina Faso and Mali. I have to admit, it is a bit like a blind trip that they asking me to do. Short notice, no specification until now but a lot of latitude. Thanks for your help. Martin

Martin, I’m currently in Accra, Ghana volunteering for a Canadian NGO until June next year. I’ve  been here for the last three months and have been to various parts of the country, as well as some of Burkina. I’m not sure what your work here will involve, but feel free to get in touch with me if you think I can help. Transmission in most larger cities in Ghana shouldn’t be an issue as there are plenty of internet cafes, but Burkina will be more difficult, and expect Mali to be much worse.

Mali is not ‘much worse’, Mali is imposible as regards internet conection. I’ve just returned from there. Expect opening an email page in at least 10 minutes. As for reaching further, pray hard and maybe return the next day. Don’t even dream about uploading images using the public net connections. If you need more help don’t hesitate to contact me.

if you are in ouagadougou, burkina – you should be able to transmit fairly quickly/easily (ADSL, i think) at the hotel independence.  i was there last year and had no problems using their "business center" at 1500cfa per hour i believe.  good luck.
