Telecom giant, Vodafone Ghana has disclosed plans for expanding its national roaming services in partnership with MTN which would give customers improved connectivity across the country.
This initiative, which was first initiated when the pilot program began last year covering the Volta Region, has now been extended to cover the entire nation.
The agreement between the two telecom giants is part of the Ghanaian government’s plans to enhance the country’s access to digital transformation while accelerating the implementation of full national roaming regulations among all telecom operators in the country. Glo, the country’s smallest mobile network operator by subscriptions, recently entered a nationwide roaming agreement with the competitor AirtelTigo in April 2022, which would help provide better coverage and a faster mobile broadband experience for their customers.
Vodafone Ghana CEO, Patricia Obo-Nai, commenting on the new expansion agreement said “National roaming offers customers a greater choice of network providers. In 2022, we successfully collaborated with the government, the regulator, and MTN Ghana to pilot the national roaming service in the Volta Region. We are excited that this partnership has extended to other regions.”
