Regulator issues BWA licence to GoldKey Properties

1 Mar 2011

According to unconfirmed reports in Ghana Business News, the National Communications Authority (NCA) has awarded a Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) licence to GoldKey Properties Limited. It is understood the telecoms start-up paid USD5.5 million for the rights to use frequencies in the 2500MHz-2690MHz band for the next ten years. The NCA conducted a hybrid ‘beauty contest’/auction process to select GoldKey from a list of five applicants. GoldKey won a paired slot of 2×15MHz at the final auction phase. The BWA licences are intended to provide wireless broadband connectivity in Ghana and are technology neutral.
