The Minister of Communication and Digitalisation, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has announced that the country will soon start a national roaming service.
The roaming service will enable SIM card users to automatically port in order to access good networks within a particular timeframe in no-coverage-area SIM cards from different network providers.
She made this known via a post on her Facebook page on Friday, 30 April 2021.
“Ghana to start a national roaming service and interoperability wherein 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 does not need to own several SIM cards from different network providers,” she announced.
Though there was no hint at the date for a rollout of the service, the implementation of the move will ensure that a SIM user is able to automatically connect to another mobile network with better connectivity.
