NCA extends free spectrum to MTN and Vodafone

1 Dec 2020

Ghana’s National Communications Authority (NCA) has granted additional temporary spectrum at no cost to MTN and Vodafone to improve their service to customers. The extra 5MHz of frequencies was initially made available to the two cellcos in April 2020 for a three-month period to address a surge in usage during the COVID-19 lockdown. In anticipation of increased demand during the election period and Christmas season, the extra spectrum has again been made available to prevent congestion and keep costs reasonable for consumers.
