January 14, 2022 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 14, 2022--

The “Ghana - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to’s offering.

Ghana’s third largest MNO AirtelTigo comes under state control

MTN Ghana is by a long way the largest MNO in teh country. It is followed by Vodafone Ghana, which now reports to Vodacom Group, and closely afterward by the merged AirtelTigo.

Bharti Airtel and MIC, the parent companies of AirtelTigo, have both reconsidered their involvement in the region. MIC has progressively exited from its African markets in recent years, choosing instead to focus on its business units in Latin America.


The dominance of MTN continues to be of concern to the regulator, which has introduced new types of unified licenses and has imposed several measures relating to interconnection and the price of voice and data services, so as to prevent the company from undercutting its competitors.
