The Brong Ahafo Coalition of Business Associations, (BACBA), has called on the National Communication Authority, (NCA), and the Government to ensure that the telecommunication companies in the country provide quality services to the people of Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regions and the country as a whole.
Speaking in an interview with GBC in Sunyani, the Chairman of the Association, Mustapha Maison Yeboah said the poor services being rendered by the various Telecommunication companies in the country is collapsing their businesses hence the need for NCA to take action to check the activities of telecommunication companies.
Mr. Maison said call drops, call breaks, network congestion, Internet interruptions and disappearing data must be addressed to save businesses.
He urged the NCA, the Parliamentary Select Committee on Communication, GIFEC, NITA and all stakeholders to help address the issue.
On July 29, 2019, government through the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori Atta announced a three percent increase in talk time tax in the mid-year budget.
Between November 2011 and 2015, the NCA fined the operators more than two million Ghana cedis for various offences for poor service.
