Togo seals free-roaming deal with Ghana

The deal suppresses roaming charges between Ghana and Togo, and cell phone users in both countries will soon be able to communicate at a lower cost without having to change their SIM card

Togo and Ghana signed a free-roaming agreement on 1 November 2023, in Accra, Ghana.

The deal was inked by Michel Yaovi Galley, director general of Togo’s telecom watchdog, ARCEP, and Joe Anokye, his counterpart from the National Communications Authority (NCA).

In a press release, the ARCEP attributed the signing to months of talks between the regulators and representatives of mobile operators active in both countries—MTN, Airtel, Vodafone and Moov Africa Togo and Togo Cellulaire.

The deal suppresses roaming charges between Ghana and Togo, and cell phone users in both countries will soon be able to communicate at a lower cost without having to change their SIM card.

Cell phone operators in both countries have decided to lower rates for Togolese travelers visiting Ghana and vice versa.

In detail, call reception is now free for the first thirty (30) consecutive days for Ghanaian customers visiting Togo and for Togolese customers staying in Ghana, whereas it is currently billed at CFA240 per minute with Togo Cellulaire and CFA207 with Moov Africa Togo.

Calls will cost CFA8.67 (GHC 0.17) per minute, compared with CFA279 (GHC5.45) with Togo Cellulaire and CFA550 (GC10.73) with Moov Africa Togo before. The cost of internet data has been capped at CFA1.6 per MB, against CFA8,400 (GHC163.92) on Togocel and CFA200 (maximum) on Moov, at present.

The deal will come into effect on 1 March 2024, according to the ARCEP’s press release.

It should be noted that Togo recently sealed a similar deal with Benin.
