The Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Honourable Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has announced that Ghana will be rolling out 5G services by the end of 2024.

She emphasized that the move would revolutionize the country’s digital landscape and bring high-speed mobile broadband services to Ghanaians.

The minister revealed that the government has partnered with seven industry players to establish a shared infrastructure for 5G services with the aim of delivering affordable and high-speed mobile broadband services across Ghana.

The partners include Ascend Digital, K-NET, Radisys, Nokia, Tech Mahindra, AT Ghana, and Telecel Ghana.

Honourable Ekuful emphasized that the rollout of 5G services is critical to achieving the Digital Ghana vision, which aims to leverage technology to drive economic growth, improve healthcare, education, and digital payment transactions.

She added that the partnership will enhance the lives of Ghanaians by introducing digital services that will reduce the digital divide and promote financial inclusion.

The Next-Gen Infrastructure Company (NGIC), established by the partners, has been awarded a 5G license and is expected to launch 5G services across Ghana within the next six months. NGIC plans to expand its services to other parts of Africa, with Ghana being the first country to benefit from this partnership.

The rollout of 5G services is expected to bring numerous benefits to Ghanaians, including faster data speeds, lower latency, and increased connectivity. This will enable citizens to access digital services, including healthcare, education, and financial services, more efficiently and effectively.

Ghana joins a select group of African countries that have rolled out 5G services, including South Africa, Nigeria, and Egypt. The move is expected to position Ghana as a digital hub in West Africa and attract investment in the technology sector.
