As a step to help operators cope with a significant increase in internet traffic amid the coronavirus lockdown, Ghana’s telecoms regulator the National Communications Authority (NCA) has temporarily granted Vodafone and MTN Ghana additional pectrum.

According to Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the additional spectrum has been granted to the country’s two largest mobile network operators (MNOs) at no cost for a three-month period to “help reduce pressure on their networks”, which are “bearing the brunt” of the surge in demand. However, she also urged the consumers to be part of the solution and moderate their data usage in order to alleviate the pressure on telecoms providers.
