Ghana Telephone 'Area Codes'

This post features charts that previously appeared at the bottom of the results' page of the GHfind database.  I put it there so that, if a person wanted, he or she would know which area or network they were calling in Ghana before actually clicking a hyperlink to do so.  However placing these charts on that page made its appearance more cumbersome.  So I decided to replace them with a link that points to this point instead.

To some degree, Ghana's 'area code' system is similar to the US, at least as far as landlines are concerned.  In other words if a phone number begins with the following three (or two, if you're calling from outside) digits, that means it is located in the region listed below:

030
031
032
033
034
035
036
037
038
039

But of course these days exponentially more people use cellphones than landlines.  So the 'area code' of most phone numbers in Ghana doesn't point to a specific location but rather a particular telecommunications' company.  And they are as listed below:

020, 050
023
024, 054, 055, 059
026, 027, 056, 057
028

It is important to note that when calling Ghana from outside, the first zero in the area code is not actually present.  It is instead replaced with Ghana's country code, which is 00233 or +233.

CONCLUSION
