In Ghana, through its partnership with Vodafone, hotspots have already reportedly been deployed in a few areas within Accra, including Nima, Maamobi, Pigfarm, Jamestown and Abossey Okai.
According to reports, 100 megabytes of data on the service costs GH₵ 1.00 ($0.19) while 1 gigabyte costs GH₵ 5.00 ($0.95).
