Subscribers of the largest mobile network in Ghana, MTN, report that they have been experiencing major interruptions in their network for the part two weeks, making it difficult for them to make or receive calls successfully.
Some subscribers Biztechafrica spoke to confirmed their frustrations and noted that calls from the MTN network to other networks are barred, while incoming calls to MTN networks are often blocked.
Although MTN Ghana has not disclosed to the public the cause of this major problem with its network, many attribute it to the current regular power cuts experienced in the country. Subscribers said they were confused as to why subscribers of other networks do not appear to be experiencing the same problems.
MTN Ghana issued a statement apologising to subscribers across the country who are experiencing difficulty in making and receiving calls. According to MTN Ghana, its technical team is currently working to ensure that full services are restored as soon as possible.
