Telcos chamber hints of a likely increment in tariffs


The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications says its business members may have to enhance their tariffs due to the current high cost of doing business in the country.

Speaking to the media, the Chief Executive officer of the Chamber, Eng. Dr Kenneth Ashigbey justified the anticipated tariff increment by arguing that many sectors have already taken the lead in adjusting their costs upwards.

“If you consider the fact that the cost of doing business has gone up, even the water producers association have met to increase the price of water etc, so naturally what is going to happen is that the industry has to increase prices because the cost of doing business has gone up.”

He nonetheless added that “but the individual ones I will not be able to talk about that.”

Already, players like Telco big, MTN had earlier introduced an increment in their data tariffs however have since postponed the date of implementation.

This comes at a time when utility tariffs are up, gas costs have skyrocketed and inflation is at an all-time high.
