The 3G connection will no longer be the privilege of certain targeted areas. Everyone will be able to access it, starting with the landlocked areas or poorly covered in mobile network. This was decided by the National Communications Authority (NCA) of Ghana. It will only remain for mobile operators to play their roles.
Joe Anokye, the CEO of the NCA, reassured that 3G technology will allow companies especially to be more efficient and benefit from attractive rates. « We will promote digital inclusion in Ghana. This will result in maximum use of the spectrum and an improved and consistent telecom experience that will reduce blackheads of 3G coverage, « he said. The deployment of the 3G network could cover large areas and thus allow a large number of consumers to remain connected.
With a population of about 26 million, Ghana has 6 telecom operators (all multinationals) who share the market. MTN (48.92%), Vodafone (21.86%), Tigo (14.35%), Airtel (12.54%), GLO (2.06%) and Expresso %).
