GHANA National Communication Authority (NCA) and ARTP of TOGO addressed issues pertaining to the frequency spectrum between the two countries.
Facing the regular interference of the radio spectrum between Ghanaian and Togolese users, the NCA and ARTP have initiated a meeting for frequency coordination between the two countries. Indeed, the radiofrequency spectrum is generally used by telecommunications companies to provide mobile services, internet etc…..
Some Ghanaian users have subscribed to Togolese networks and vice versa, which prevents good mobile communication from taking place. Such is the purpose of the bilateral meeting held on February 7 in Accra between the two regulators, the mobile service companies of the two countries, with the aim of finding solutions to this issue. At the opening of the meeting, Henry Kanor, Deputy Managing Director in charge of NCA technical operations, thus representing the Managing Director of NCA, pointed out that such a meeting was not the first of the kind, as both bodies had already organised working sessions on the use of the radio frequency spectrum in previous years in accordance with Article 6 of the ITU Radio Communication Charter. The strong points of the meeting were among others:
• TO DEFINE THE TERMS FOR THE OPERATORS ON HOW TO USE THE FREQUENCIES IN BOTH COUNTRIES
• TO ENSURE QUALITY SERVICE AND GOOD NETWORK COVERAGE Telecommunications equipment connecting to frequency spectra have to be approved for GHANA and TOGO respectively, in compliance with the regulations.
