Ghana, Liberia in Discussions on Free Roaming Arrangement

For Liberia, the agreement with Ghana would be it would be its first-ever roaming partnership

Ghana’s National Communications Authority (NCA) and Liberian telecom authorities have begun discussions for a free-roaming arrangement to be implemented this year.

Officials from the Liberia Telecommunications Authority were in Ghana this week to fine-tune a preliminary agreement that will see both countries establish roaming services to enhance the telecommunications landscape.

In February, Ghana’s Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, announced plans to establish bilateral ECOWAS roaming service with Togo, Benin, and the Gambia, following Ghana’s successful implementation of a similar pact with Côte d’Ivoire in 2023.
