Colombia's Tigo and Uff reach deal to prevent disconnection

Thursday 2 March 2017 | 10:51 CET | News
Colombian operator Tigo-UNE, owned by Luxembourg-based Millicom, won't be disconnecting the 100,000 users served by MVNO Uff Movil after the two companies reached a preliminary deal. Although the details of the agreement are still being finalised, Uff Movil president Javier Pinzon said users will end up benefiting from the new deal and the operator's relationship with Tigo-UNE will emerge stronger. The Millicom-owned operator had earlier threatened to cut off Uff Movil's users due to non-payment of network charges amounting to at least COP 5 billion, according to a report in La Republica.
