Six cellcos, including Airtel Ghana, Tigo Ghana and Expresso, have been instructed to expand their networks to cover the Adaklu district of the Volta region within the next six months or face sanctions, Agence Ecofin cites Minister of Communications Ursula Owusu Ekuful as saying in parliament.

The development follows an order issued by the National Communications Authority (NCA) in March this year instructing the country’s mobile network operators (MNOs) to meet quality of service (QoS) requirements, with a priority of resolving the matter in the capital before rolling out improvements nationwide.
