A Study of the Ghana Telecommunications Industry

- with Key Statistics, Regulatory Data & Fixed-Line Telecom Overviews

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Ghana - Key Statistics Regulatory & Fixed-Line Telecoms Overviews" report to their offering.

Ghana led the way in telecommunications liberalisation and deregulation in Africa when it privatised Ghana Telecom as early as 1996. Following the exit of the investor in 2007, the company is currently being re-privatised. Similarly, the second national operator, Westel, was re-privatised in 2007. An initial public offering is expected from both companies in the near future. The highly competitive bidding for both companies indicates the huge potential that is seen in the market despite the intense competition from six licensed mobile networks. New submarine fibre optic cables set to reach the country in 2009 will create competition with the current monopoly provider of international bandwidth and support the ongoing convergence of technologies and services. Key Topics Covered:

- Key statistics

- Telecommunications market

- Regulatory environment

- Fixed network operators in Ghana

- Telecommunications infrastructure
