AirtelTigo, Vodafone Ghana granted stay of execution over NCA fines

5 Feb 2019

Ghana’s Electronic Communications Tribunal has granted a stay of execution requested by two telcos AirtelTigo and Vodafone Ghana, regarding fines imposed on them by the National Communications Authority (NCA) in late-2018, reports Business Ghana. MTN Ghana and Glo Mobile have also filed the same requests but their applications are still pending. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in November 2018 all four mobile operators were fined a combined total of GHS34.1 million (USD7.0 million) for breaches of quality of service (QoS) requirements. The stay of execution granted to AirtelTigo and Vodafone Ghana means that both companies have more time to prepare for the hearing of the substantive case, for which no date has yet been fixed.
