Tigo Tanzania expands 4G services to 4 towns

Monday 9 May 2016 | 08:33 CET | News
Tigo Tanzania announced its LTE technology will soon be available in Tabora, Musoma, Bukoba, Kigoma and Shinyanga. The company first launched the service in Dar es Salaam in early 2015 before expanding to Arusha, Tanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Moshi and Mwanza. The new technology is about five times faster than the 3G services widely used in Tanzania. In 2016, Tigo will be investing over USD 75 million on the network expansion and quality improvement.
