Tigo Paraguay to launch 4G service in June 2016

Monday 19 October 2015 | 14:46 CET | News
Paraguayan mobile operator Tigo is planning to launch 4G services in the country by June 2016, reports local daily Ultima Hora, citing the company's institutional relations director Raul Ibanez. The operator revealed its plans following the government's announcement that six blocks of frequencies in the 1,700-2100 MHz (AWS) band will be auctioned in December. Tigo plans to join the operators Personal and Vox, who already provide LTE services, and begin offering 4G in Paraguayan capital Asuncion around six months after the frequencies are awarded.
