After you have a checkeded for the status of your phone using the test above and the results that say that your device and your SIM card can both access the 4G network, then you do not need to worry since you will be able to connect to the 4G connectivity from Vodafone Ghana right away.
However, if the result that comes back says that your device and the SIM card can access the 4G network but your phone cannot, it simply means that it is right about time for you to get yourself a new smartphone if you want to enjoy the 4G services from Vodafone Ghana. This is because the smartphone you are using does not support 4G or LTE connectivity.
And if the result, however, says that your SIM card is not ready for4G connectivity, all you have to do is visit any Vodafone Ghana office near you to give you a 4G ready SIM card.
Vodafone Ghana has already deployed the 4G network services in major cities in the country. The telecom company already has more than 200 sites in various parts of the country where customers can access the 4G network service.
Although 3G is still in existence on some smartphones, 4G connectivity is the main thing right now, and it will soon make way for the 5G network, which is already gaining traction in several countries abroad.
It will quickly be mainstream in Africa as well. There are already some high-end devices available here that can access the 5G network, but we do not know if there is a SIM card by any telecom company here that will be able to help the smartphone access the device.
You can get several high-end smartphones if you have the money to spend to experience a 5G connection before most people in the country can get to do so. We are pretty sure that is entirely something to do.
