The telecom sector in Ghana is highly competitive with many multinational companies having a significant presence in the industry. Since the initiation of the first cellular services in Ghana in 1998 by Millicom Ghana, the mobile sector in the country has witnessed rapid growth.

Ghana has a well-developed telecom market with many GSM operators as well as a CDMA network operator as well. With mobile penetration touching almost 90% in the country, it is no wonder that Ghana has one of the most developed mobile sectors in Africa.
