Tigo Tanzania is set to invest over US$ 75 million to take its superfast 4G network countrywide as well improve its quality and increase the number of customer service outlets countrywide.
From inception in April 2015 in Dar Es Salaam, Tigo 4G LTE has expanded to Arusha, Tanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Moshi, Mwanza, Tabora, Musoma, Bukoba, Kigoma and Shinyanga and plans are underway to cover all major cities before the end of this year.
According to Tigo General Manager, Diego Gutierrez, “The countrywide expansion of 4G once again demonstrates not only Tigo’s leadership in delivering cutting edge technology and innovation in Tanzania but also emphasizes our commitment to increase access to the Internet to as many Tanzanians as possible.”
Tigo is also currently embarking on a network modernization program which includes increasing capacity to all the 12 4G LTE covered cities as well as increasing considerably the 3G coverage countrywide and optimizing the 2G network.
4G LTE helps users transfer large data faster at lower rates. Tigo will this year be investing over US$ 75 million on the network expansion and quality improvement by scaling up its 4G and 3G sites, fiber network as well as increasing the number of customer service outlets countrywide.
Last year March, Tigo Tanzania announced it would spend $120 million on network through rolling out 843 new mobile telephone network transmission sites all over the country. This latest investment shows how far the firm aims to go satisfy its customers.
