Government orders ATC to reconnect Telecel


    The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization (MoCD) and the National Communications Authority (NCA) has instructed leading tower company, ATC Ghana to reconnect all Telecel Ghana sites and retract their earlier publication alleging that Telecel had been disconnected for non-payment of bills.

    This was at a meeting between the Ministry, NCA and the two parties – ATC and Telecel on Friday. July 5, 2024, following allegations by ATC that Telecel had failed to pay their power and fuel bills and for that matter their equipment on the tower co-location sites had been disconnected.

    Minutes after ATC issued their statement, Telecel Ghana also issued a rebuttal, describing ATC’s allegations as “utterly false.”

    The matter has therefore been referred to the NCA for arbitration, ahead ATC has been ordered to restore service to Telecel immediately, and retract their earlier publication through the same media they made the allegations.

    Meanwhile, Techfocus24 has gathered some detailed information on what actually led to the ATC deciding to disconnect Telecel. Stay tuned for those details soon.
