Ghanaian Government bans expiry of data bundles

Ghanaians will soon enjoy unlimited data and voice bundles following a move by the government to ban expiry of voice and data bundles.

Ghanaian Ministry of Communication in a letter dated October 9, directed all Telecommunication operators in the country to stop the expiry of voice and data bundles purchased by consumers.

“All unused data and voice bundles purchased by subscribers that has not been used must not expire and must be rolled over with the next recharge,” read the letter by Ghanaian Ministry of Communications.
