MTN Ghana’s main revenue lines are airtime and subscription, interconnect and roaming, SMS, data, handset and accessories, mobile money, and value added services.

Data and mobile money are expected to be the dominant drivers of revenue due to increased internet use and reliance on mobile money for payments.

Currently, MTN Ghana maintains market leadership with 55.2 percent share in the competitive telecommunication industry.
