Title: Ghana to Witness a Positive Spur in Telecom, Mobile and Broadband Sectors: Ken Research

Ghana to Witness a Positive Spur in Telecom,
Mobile and Broadband Sectors Ken Research
Ghana is one of the first countries in Africa to
deregulate and liberalize its telecommunication
sector. Import duty on mobile services had been
reintroduced by Ghana's government. Mobile,
internet and fixed line sector increased rapidly,
after privatization of Ghana Telecom in 1996. The
privatization was done by providing license to
new players so that they offer services.
According to the report, Ghana - Telecoms,
Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics
and Analyses, there had been a reduction in cost
of access to broadband services after the arrival
of two submarine fiber optic cables in 2012 and
2013 and also the international bandwidth
significantly increased after this arrival.
Currently, Vodafone Group has been the second
largest player in the mobile services segment and
it is the principal fixed line provider and owner
of Ghana Telecom. Even, Westel has prolonged to
be the member of one of the leading mobile
operators in Africa. Provision of access to ISP's
on a cheaper rate on wholesale basis by Google is
being done. Also Google has to build a fibre
network that covers major cities. National fiber
backbone networks, combined by other development
will continue to revolutionize the countries
broadband market by numerous players to pave way
to technologies and services.
  • In Africa, the most vibrant mobile network market
    has been Ghana regional MTN, Vodafone, Bharti
    Airtel and Millicom formely Zain and Tigo which
    are the top most competitive operators. By the
    late 2015, an increase in the subscriber growth
    and lower average revenue per user due to
    extensive competition was noticed. Therefore, it
    gets difficult to analyze regular revenue growth
    by a particular operator. Anyway, there is growth
    in mobile data ARPU and subscriber addition in
    voice market with enormous potential in mobile
    broadband services. A wide variety of internet
    connection is accounted by mobile broadband and
    the future for the same is bright as well.
  • Ghana being the first country to get connected
    with internet in Africa and launch DSL services
    as well has been very competitive but most of the
    subscribers are of some specific players. Earlier

There was poor connectivity to internet with slow
speed in national fixed line network with high
cost as well. But after the introduction of 3G
mobile and wireless broadband technology like
HSPA and WiMAX, there has been an increase in the
speed as well as more convenience is being
offered to customers that is helping in the
increasing the customer base. In eastern and
western corridors, the government has invested in
building fibre infrastructure. By expanding the
retail and wholesale offering, the reprivatized
national carrier, Ghana Telecom has been
effective in driving the broadband market as
well. In the years to come, Ghana is sure to
proliferate in all sectors majorly in mobile and
broadband with ameliorating processes and
