MTN Ghana internet settings

MTN was the first to introduce 4G into the internet market in Ghana. To have 4G on your phone, it has to first be a 4G enabled device with a 4G SIM card and be within MTN 4G coverage zone.

To check for device compatibility is not that difficult. Dial *585# and wait for a notification pop-up in less than a minute.



Typically, once you have dialled this code, there are two other options you are required to pick, choose option 2 and you will immediately get a confirmation message.

The message will determine whether you need simply a 4G SIM card or a 4G Smartphone altogether. In the case of 4G SIM card, simply walk to any MTN service centre to swap your card for free.

You will still have access to all the details in the old SIM card.
