More QoS problems on Ghana’s mobile networks

13 Jun 2012

Ghana’s mobile network operators have once again been handed fines for failing to meet the regulator’s quality of service (QoS) targets. The National Communications Authority (NCA) has fined MTN a total of GHS150,000 (USD78,000) for call set-up delays in one region and network congestion problems in two regions, while Vodafone and Tigo have both been hit with GHS50,000 penalties, the former for call set-up delays in one region and the latter for signalling congestion in one region. Fines for Airtel and Expresso have been suspended pending the completion of ongoing expansion work.
