Ghana - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Ghana has a highly competitive internet market, with more than 140 licensed ISPs although most subscribers are customers of only a few operators. The country was among the first in Africa to be connected to the internet, though subscriber growth in the sector was for many years held back by the poor condition of the national fixed-line network and by the high cost of connectivity.

Improvements to international and terrestrial cable infrastructure has helped drive down the cost of access, while the government has helped fund schemes to extend coverage of telecom services nationally. This has seen extensions to fibre infrastructure in the Eastern and Western Corridors in recent years, as well as a new cable connecting to Burkina Faso operated by Vodafone Wholesale.
