The Ghana telephone numbering plan is the system used for assigning telephone numbers in Ghana. It is regulated by the National Communications Authority, which holds responsibility for telecommunications.

Mobile numbering plan[edit]

Due to the unreliability of fixed-line infrastructure in Ghana, mobile phones are more widely used. Competition among the various mobile carriers has spurred growth with a subscriber penetration rate of 98% in 2010.[2] The poor call quality of mobile phones, however, means that more people hold more than one mobile phone, usually with two or more different carriers.

The various mobile carriers in Ghana have each been assigned a network code.

Mobile Carrier Network Code(s)
Globacom (023)
MTN (024), (054), (055)
Tigo (027), (057)
Expresso (028)
Vodafone (020), (050)
Airtel (026)
