2 Nov 2018

The National Communications Authority (NCA) of Ghana received just two bids in its October 2018 auction of 800MHz frequencies, writes GhanaWeb, citing ‘reliable information’ on the matter. In the auction there were reportedly three 2×5MHz slots on offer, with the NCA’s asking price for each set at USD33.75 million. Vodafone Ghana is reported to have offered USD24 million for one slot, while local company Quantum Oil offered just USD2 million for another. A winner was supposed to have been announced by 24 October, but the NCA has yet to do so.
