The initiative will allow citizens who have poor network service to have an automatic switch to a different network provider available and effective in their current area.
According to the Global Economy, in 2016, 80 per cent of Ghana has mobile network coverage. However, we must admit that not all areas within Ghana have all network providers providing coverage. Therefore, people who travel to areas their network provider can’t reach have to carry extra SIM cards from different providers.
The lawyer and women’s rights activist has said that such people can have relief now because of the national roaming service.
“Ghana to START a National roaming service/ Interoperability where in areas your network provider has no coverage, your sim is automatically ported unto the available network for the period of time you are within the no coverage area.
This means one do not need to own several sim cards from different Network Providers..”
However, the Minister has not disclosed details about the initiative yet. Thus, whether the national roaming will incur extra charges or it will be absolutely free. The details will also cover the issue of data usage while roaming and all other vital information.
