Vodafone Ghana wins USD30m 4G spectrum

2 Jan 2019

Vodafone Ghana, the country’s second largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, has won a bid for 2×5MHz of spectrum in the 800MHz frequency band, to be used for the introduction of 4G LTE services, writes My Joy Online. The granting of the spectrum to Vodafone is a result of a process which began in September 2018 and the 4G licence was issued by the National Communications Authority (NCA) last week. The NCA said that ‘two companies submitted applications, with Vodafone emerging as the only successful applicant.’ Vodafone Ghana is expected to begin the rollout of 4G mobile services soon.
