Tigo has engaged in a network expansion program to increase its coverage of the population and to enhance its customers’ experience of the Tigo service.

As part of its strategy, Tigo is planning to invest a total of US $100 million this year alone to upgrade its services and install new base stations nationwide. This material investment will increase network capacity, improve coverage and enhance users’ experience. Access to the Internet will be more widely available in the country and our customers will experience faster connection speeds.

The expansion, which is expected to be completed by end of this year, will spread to all 26 regions including, Lake Zone region, Northern and Southern regions, Mtwara, Iringa and Pwani, giving Tigo the largest coverage footprint in the country.

“This investment demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality communications standards,” said Mr. Diego Gutierrez, General Manager of Tigo. “As a consumer-centric organization, we want our customers, wherever they may be, to benefit from the most extensive network coverage and the highest possible quality of service. With this investment, more people across the country will have access to traditional mobile services but also to more innovative services such as Tigo Pesa and Tigo Internet,” he said.
