Business Monitor International's Ghana Telecommunications Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, telecommunication associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Ghana's telecommunications industry.

In this quarter's update on Ghana's telecoms market, we have incorporated the YE11 data from the National
Communications Authority (NCA) latest operational and financial data published by some of the country's
major telecoms service providers. We envisage that the country's mobile sector will have 29.569mn mobile
