Tanzania’s mobile network, Tigo, has launched its 4G LTE Technology that is set to make it the biggest and fastest Internet network in the country.
According to a news release on its website, the new technology will bring about enhanced customer experience for various internet activities, given the fact that it is 5 times faster than the 3G technology.
Speaking at the launch, Tigo Interim General Manager Cecile Tiano said: “This once again demonstrates our company’s commitment to the digital lifestyle transformation and its leadership in delivering cutting edge technology and innovation in this market.”
Ms Tiano also revealed that the launch covers Masaki and Mlimani City areas within Dar es Salaam, but their plan is to fully cover the city by end of July, ensuring quality coverage in Kinondoni, Ilala and Temeke in places such as Upanga, Posta, Tegeta, Mbagala, Tabata, Kimara, Mbezi, Ukonga, Salasala, Mikocheni, Msasani and Sinza.
“We will also launch 4G in Arusha, Dodoma, Morogoro, Moshi, Mwanza and Tanga by end of August. This will make us by far the biggest 4G network in Tanzania,” she added.
