Ghana Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Statistics and Analyses 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 4, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--The “Ghana - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Ghana’s telecommunications market. The report analyses the fixed-line, mobile and broadband sectors.

The internet market is highly competitive, with a large number of ISPs, though most subscribers are customers of only a few operators. While subscriber growth in the sector was for many years held back by the poor condition of the national fixed-line network and by the high cost of connectivity, the situation improved following the introduction of fixed-wireless and mobile broadband technologies and the vastly increased international bandwidth available. The government has also invested in building extensive fibre infrastructure in the Eastern and Western Corridors.

Key Developments:

Regulator to replace 2G licenses with unified access licenses in 2019 Tigo Ghana and Airtel Ghana complete merger MTN Ghana secures one of two blocks of spectrum in the 800MHz band, expands the reach of LTE services Expresso sold to Kludjeson International Surfline Communications and Blu Telecoms launch LTE services Regulator’s fines on MNOs for QoS issues stimulate additional investments Government planning launch of the Ghanasat 1 satellite in 2020 Government sets up Smart Communities Project Vodafone expands FttP-based broadband services Fibre network for Eastern Corridor completed Report update includes the regulator’s market data to September 2017, telcos’ operating data to Q4 2017, recent market developments
