Millicom to unify Colombia services under Tigo brand

Friday 12 April 2019 | 11:52 CET | News
Millicom has decided to unify its Colombian operations under the Tigo brand starting later this month, reports La Republica, citing TigoUne's president Marcelo Cataldo. Around 5 years after Tigo completed its merger with Colombian cable and fixed line operator UNE, owned by Empresas Publicas de Medellin (EPM), the company has decided to simplify its offer with a view to building a single ecosystem for different services. "Simplifying the brand will allow us to increase recognition and be in tune with trends on a global scale," said Cataldo.
