In less than three months, Tigo has acquired more than 250,000 subscribers in the turmoil ridden North and South Kivu provinces. The re-entry of the mobile telecom company, has signaled that the market has space for more operators.
The operator has also opened up a Tigo store in North Kivu capital Goma despite the unrest in those parts of the country.
Millicom President and CEO, Hans-Holger Albrecht said: “We are very proud to be back in Kivu. Our return has been met by an amazing response from its people and I congratulate our team for their extraordinary work in such tough conditions. The progress is a symbol of the ambition to help transform the lives of customers in Kivu and support the process of normalisation across the region.”
