Ghana - Internet and Broadband Market - Overview andStatistics
 Ghana was among the first countries in Africa connected to the Internet and to introduce ADSLbroadband services. The sector is highly competitive with more than 140 licensed ISPs,although the bulk of the market is in the hands of only a few. Until recently, internet user penetration was below 10% of the population, mainly due to the poor condition of the nationalfixed-line network and the high cost of connectivity. However, developments are now speedingup following the introduction of wireless and 3G mobile and wireless broadband technologiessuch as HSPA, WiMAX and iBurst, and the arrival of three new international fibre linksbetween 2010 and 2012 which has ended the monopolistic pricing of international bandwidth.The re-privatised national carrier, Ghana Telecom has begun to be more effective in drivingthe broadband market by expanding its retail as well as wholesale offerings under the newVodafone banner.
Key developments:
The country is now served by four international submarine fibre optic cables, which is bringingdown prices for broadband internet access.

Ghana - Mobile Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts
Synopsis
Since launching the first cellular mobile network in sub-Saharan Africa in 1992, Ghana hasbecome one of the continent’s most vibrant mobile markets with now six competing operators,including regional heavyweights such as MTN, Vodafone, Bharti Airtel (formerly Zain) andMillicom (Tigo). The entry of Nigeria’s Globacom as the sixth player in 2012 has deliveredanother boost to the sector. Subscriber growth, however, has come at the expense of theaverage revenue per user (ARPU) which has fallen below US$5 per month for some of theoperators. While the voice market is approaching saturation at more than 90% penetration inmid-2012, enormous potential in both subscriber and ARPU terms exists for 3G mobilebroadband services which already represent the vast majority of Internet connections in thecountry.
Key developments:
Sixth mobile network launched;3G mobile broadband services represent majority of Internet connections.
