BMI View: Leading operator MTN Ghana launched 4G services in June 2016, following its licence and spectrum acquisition in December 2015. The operator has built infrastructure in Ghana's regional capitals and is currently swapping SIM cards to get customers ready for the launch. We expect the operator to concurrently develop its VAS offerings to monetise the advantage of having the country's only 4G voice licence. Although, we maintain the view that monetisation of this network will occur in the long-term as the majority of consumers will still opt for more affordable 3G services.
