Vodafone Ghana rolls out 4G services next month

Telecommunications Company Vodafone is preparing to roll out its 4G services next month after securing the spectrum for $30 million last year.

Vodafone will be the second telecommunications company to operate on the 4G spectrum after MTN which secured the LTE license in 2015 at $67.5 million.

Citi Business News has gathered that Vodafone is at the final stages of its integration processes to commence operations on the 4G spectrum.

It is also finalizing stakeholder engagements ahead of the roll out.

The sale of the Spectrum is in line with Section 58 of Electronic Communications Act 2008, Act 775 on Spectrum Management which allows the NCA’s to assign the Frequency.

4G is the fourth generation of mobile phone communications standards which allows for high data transfer rates providing a faster, and reliable internet access both on mobile phones and computers.

Although only two telecommunications companies will be operating on the 4G, industry watchers are urging the NCA to work towards the acquisition of a 5G in line with the World technology evolution.
