Very few Ghanaians have a fixed line, as seen by the 1% penetration rate. It is possible to obtain a phone line subscription, though you may have to provide the following documents for the service provider to accept you as a customer:
- Proof of identity, including photo proof;
- Proof of address;
- Foreigner’s Visa / Permit.
Vodafone bought Ghana Telecom in 2008, and provides the option of a fixed line everywhere throughout Ghana. To apply for a fixed line, there is an easy application form, which can be downloaded online.
The company offers many different packages, which can even include broadband internet. Vodafone offers both prepaid and postpaid options, the latter of which costs roughly between 0.06 and 0.13 GH¢ per minute (US$0.03 - $0.07; €0.02 - €0.05).
To make an international call, for example to Germany or the USA, from a landline will cost around 0.13 GH¢ for both peak and off peak tariffs.
