How to get Vodafone 4G Service & Settings in Ghana

Vodafone Subscribers in Major cities in Ghana can now enjoy Vodafone Ghana's 4G Service.

Starting today, 19th March 2019, Vodafone Ghana will begin rolling out its 4G services to the general public.

Vodafone Ghana got the 4G licence from the National Communications Authority (NCA), at the end of 2018. The NCA gave the telecom company one slot of the 2x5MHz frequency spectrum in the 800MHz band for mobile services.

The rollout of Vodafone’s 4G service was supposed to start somewhere in the second quarter of this year. However, it seems to have come a little bit earlier than that.

Vodafone will now become the second telecom operator in Ghana to run the 4G network, rivals MTN Ghana.

How to check if your phone and sim card support Vodafone 4G

To check if you can enjoy Vodafone Ghana’s 4G service:

  1. Dial *700# on your Vodafone handset
  2. Select option 6 (Check 4G Status)
  3. Select option 1 (Check 4G Phone or SIM Readiness)
  4. You will receive a prompt that gives you the status of your phone and SIM Card

Alternatively, you can just dial *700*6*1# and you will instantly receive the prompt to know your status.

Meaning of Results and how to get Vodafone 4G

If the result of the *700*6*1# check says that your phone and SIM are both 4G ready, then you don’t have to worry. You can start enjoying Vodafone Ghana’s 4G right away.

However, if it says your SIM is 4G ready, but your phone is not, this is because your phone does not support 4G or LTE services. You will have to get a new phone.

If the results indicate that your SIM is not 4G ready, you can visit any of Vodafone Ghana’s shop and have a 4G SIM.
