Getting Away with Murder? Why Ghana’s Telcos Need to Face the Music in Court

Telcos in Ghana seem to have taken the needs of consumers for granted, possibly leading to a monopolistic situation squeezing life out of our mobile experiences. How utterly unexpected!

Let’s paint a vivid picture for you: imagine you’re a diligent Ghanaian trying to make ends meet in a country that is already tearing you down. Your livelihood hangs in the balance, relying on dependable communication for everything from chatting with family to sealing those oh-so-important business deals. And let’s not forget the essential conversations with your “side chic” or “sugar daddy.”But our telcos don’t care about any of these except their profit.

They simply won’t allow you to be great!

The regular Ghanaian is left to bear the burden of this entire telecommunications spectacle, and it’s not just about those pesky dropped calls or that customer service that’s just shy of being a circus act. No, it’s a blatant and unapologetic disregard for the individuals who generously keep these telcos afloat by paying exorbitant prices for services they never enjoy to the fullest.

Can you believe that Ghanaians have been reduced to mere pawns in a riveting telco chess game where profits are the reigning kings and queens? These companies have seemingly locked down the market with little incentive to up their game or dare to innovate. They’ve grown complacent, safe knowing that their subscribers have nowhere else to turn. It’s almost as if they’ve sworn an oath to provide us with the absolute minimum while we hand over our hard-earned cedis.

But here’s the kicker: it doesn’t have to be this way! We, the consumers, can drag these telcos into court, demanding justice for every dropped call, every sloth-like internet connection, and every annoying customer service encounter. The courts can be our haven, where we seek retribution for the possible injustices we’ve suffered at the hands of these telecom giants.

And when we do take them to court, it’s not just about wanting a little financial compensation. No, go to demand accountability and a level playing field in the telecom arena. It’s time for them to face the music – or at least a catchy ringtone – and perhaps answer for the potential crimes they’ve committed against the average Ghanaian’s sacred right to reliable communication.

In addition to the courtroom theatrics, we should also consider the radical idea of introducing more competition. When telcos have to tango with genuine competition, they might surprise us by offering improved services, better customer support, and treating the everyday Ghanaian with the respect they’ve always deserved.

It’s high time they faced the consequences for their alleged monopolistic escapades, less-than-stellar services, and apparent aversion to innovation. We shall not rest until they’ve been thoroughly investigated for their possible misdeeds. it’s time to take the telcos back to court and demand justice for all those who have suffered in silence for what seems like an eternity.

From an angry customer.
