ATC Ghana cuts off Telecel tower sites

08 July 2024

ATC Ghana has cut off power supply to some Telecel tower sites across the country, and stands accused of failing to meet agreed obligations.

“The failure to comply with agreed obligations is such that ATC Ghana no longer has the capacity to purchase electricity and diesel to maintain Telecel’s equipment, especially when its agreements with Telecel have expired,” said ATC Ghana.

According to ATC, the decision was taken following extensive negotiations with Telecel and notification to the National Communications Authority (NCA). In 2022, ATC had taken a similar decision against Busy Ghana and Surfline.
