NCA Addresses Market Imbalances With New Technology

In an effort to address market imbalances in Ghana’s telecommunications sector, the National Communications Authority (NCA) has introduced technology neutrality for non-Significant Market Power (SMP) operators.

This will allow Vodafone and AT to re-farm their spectrum assignment in the 900MHz, 1800MHz, and 2100MHz bands to provide 4G services, subject to paying an annual premium.

Technology neutrality aims at creating a level playing field for all telecommunications operators and stimulating investment in infrastructure for the deployment of 4G networks by the non-SMP operators.
