Accra, February 21, 2023: The National Communications Authority (NCA) and the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Cote d’Ivoire (ARTCI) have commenced an Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) Roaming meeting with representatives of their respective Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). The meeting started on Monday February 20, 2023 and expected to end on 22nd February, 2023.
The meeting is intended to establish a framework for a proposed ECOWAS Roaming pilot exercise that allows MNOs of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire to activate and test all roaming services as well as deliberate and find solutions to all outstanding issues between the MNOs in the two countries that could impede the smooth implementation of the proposed pilot exercise.
Prof. Ezer Osei Yeboah-Boateng, Deputy Director General – Technical Operations who delivered the welcome remarks in the Director General’s stead, stated that over the years, the NCA and ARTCI have collaborated on matters relating to policy and regulatory interventions. It is therefore pleasing to note that Ghana and Ivory Coast are stepping forward with the aim of experimenting a new approach to enable an effective implementation of the ECOWAS Roaming bringing on board all stakeholders.
