Digital migration delay worries Ghana's operators

Technology & Convergence

The Ghanaian government's inability to meet the set deadline for the migration from analogue to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) is proving a costly setback for telecommunication companies hoping to bank on the yet-to-be released spectrum to boost quality of experience, Ghanaweb reported.

While the National Communications Authority (NCA), which is spearheading the migration, insists it has covered much grounds in the migration process, the country will still miss out on the 17 June deadline set by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The migration from analogue to digital will free up more spectrum for mobile telecoms, boosting mainly broadband services.
