The National Communications Authority (NCA) has sanctioned MTN Ghana for failing to comply with directives which were sent to them following some challenges with their network recently.

In the directive, the Authority directed MTN to submit a report on the challenges within 24 hours of receipt of the directive among other directives. Monitoring by the NCA has indicated that the Mobile Network Operator (MNO) has begun rolling out compensation and refunds to affected subscribers accordingly.
