NCA claims that telecoms tariffs will not increase in 2015

8 Dec 2014

Ghanaian telecoms watchdog, the National Communications Authority (NCA), has refuted media claims that it plans to increase some telecoms tariffs by up to 50% in 2015. The authority said in a press release that ‘the facts of the issue as reported in the press are not reflective of the ongoing process in reviewing wholesale interconnection rates for the mobile network operators’. The NCA pointed out that it has already discussed the impact of an Interconnect Clearing House, set to be established in May 2015, on wholesale interconnection rates; the NCA highlighted that the operation of the Clearing House will mitigate the rising trends affecting wholesale interconnection tariffs.
