Ghana

AMN will launch services in Ghana in Q1 of 2014.


Ghana has a population of 26 million people and geographically covers 238,000 square Kilometres (of which 11,000 sq. Km is covered by water).
55% of the population live in rural areas. As of 2013, approximately 80% of the population and 45% of the land area are covered by at least one of the 5 (MTN, Vodafone, Tigo, Airtel, Glo) licensed GSM mobile network operators, and by 2015 this is projected to increase to 85% population and 50% land area coverage. This means that by 2015 there will still be nearly 120,000 sq. Km of land area and nearly 4 million citizens of Ghana outside the reach of essential telecommunications services. According to studies by The World Bank, 2.2% of the population can’t be served economically by mobile network service, but this figure is reduced significantly due to AMN’s innovative low-cost solution which allows very small populations to be viable at the same times as maximizing the coverage area of a single cell and the population served.

AMN is investing $32 million to build 250 mobile network base stations in Ghana. Each of these will be connected to one of the licensed operators. The AMN network will serve a total population of nearly 2 million people (8% of the population), with an average of 7,400 people served by each base station and generating an estimated 900,000 new mobile subscribers worth circa $40 million per year in gross airtime revenues.
