Title: Telecom Infrastructure Sharing As a Strategy for Cost Optimisation
Authors: Derban, Samuel
Issue Date: 24-Jun-2011
Abstract: There is a growing need for telecom operators in Ghana to drive down the cost of network expansion. This has been expressed in recent times by many operators who now come together, on basis of mutual agreement, to consider sharing infrastructure. The National Communications Authority has also given its backing to this initiative by providing the legal and technical guidelines that would facilitate this collaboration. This research aims at exploring the benefits of the infrastructure sharing deal between engaging parties. It uses questionnaires and interviews of thirty respondents drawn from key departments of two telecom operators involved in this sharing deal. The data collected was analysed using Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The work revealed that telecom companies in Ghana indeed participate in infrastructure sharing and that this really leads to a reduction in CAPEX and OPEX and also increases the speed of network rollout. Again, the findings also showed that infrastructure sharing does not have any negative impact on quality of service. It is recommended that this type of collaboration should be continued in order to further develop the telecoms sector in Ghana.
