BMI View: Ghana's mobile market benefits from the presence of four major regional and international players, which have driven rapid growth in the mobile market through competitive offers and innovative services. By contrast, limited competition in the wireline market has stifled growth and investment into fixed broadband services. However, with digital migration now underway, the NCA's sale of 800MHz spectrum to mobile market leader MTN and increasing investment into fibre and last mile broadband connectivity, Ghana's data market is ripe for growth.

Key Data
  • The Ghanaian mobile market grew by 10.7% y-o-y in Q215 to reach nearly 120% penetration. The prevalence of multiple SIM ownership supports our view of continued growth, but increases the risk of discounting of inactive SIMs over the coming years.
  • The mobile data market grew by 20.4% y-o-y, driven by expanding network coverage, falling tariffs and increased availability of low-cost smartphones. MTN successfully bid on 800MHz spectrum, which will enable it to expand data networks into rural areas more quickly, while also putting further pressure on the underserved wireline broadband market.
