Ghana’s telecom market has benefited from the privatisation of the incumbent telco Ghana Telecom and its rebranding as Vodafone Ghana. The company is the principal fixed-line provider and also the third largest player in the mobile services sector, after MTN and the recently merged AirtelTigo. It remains a key investor in telecom infrastructure, supported by various government-funded schemes to extend the reach of telecom services nationally. Recent upgrades have included an extension to the Eastern Corridor as well as a new cable connecting to Burkina Faso operated by Vodafone Wholesale.

The launch of LTE services by Vodafone Ghana in March 2019 and the extension of LTE-A services by MTN Ghana have greatly improved the quality of mobile data services for end-users. This has been reflected in a number of areas, including the strong m-commerce and m-banking sectors. The vibrant mobile market has retained steady subscriber growth.

Ghana has a highly competitive internet market, and though there is a large number of licensed ISPs most subscribers are customers of only a few operators. In common with other markets in the region, the vast majority of internet accesses are via mobile networks.

Key Developments:

  • Eastern Corridor project completed
  • Facebook and Vodafone Ghana launch Express Wi-Fi program
  • Ghana Investment Fund sets out national telecom coverage goals
  • Vodafone Ghana secures a block of 800MHz spectrum for $30 million, launches LTE services
  • MTN Ghana lists on the Ghanaian stock exchange
  • Government to set up an additional 600 towers to provide basic mobile services
  • M-money interoperability launched
  • Merger of networks of Tigo Ghana and Airtel Ghana nears completion
  • Regulator’s fines on MNOs for QoS issues stimulate additional investments
