Regulator, Vodafone to introduce new number codes on 1 May

27 Apr 2010

Ghana’s telecoms industry regulator the National Communications Authority (NCA) and fixed line operator Vodafone Ghana (formerly Ghana Telecom) will from 1 May introduce new number codes in each of the nation’s ten administrative regions. The switchover will mean that going forward, all Ghana telephone numbers – be they fixed or mobile – will share the same ten-digit format. Local news agency GNA adds that while the new numbering system will go live from the start of May, under the transitional system being implemented calls made to the old number will reach their destination up until August 2010.
