Digital lifestyle company Tigo launches 4G+ network in Tanzania

Tigo has launched the 4G+ network in Tanzania

Tanzania’s leading digital lifestyle company Tigo has heightened the availability of ultra-fast digital experience for data customers in the country with the launch of 4G+ network.

“The launch of 4G+ is in line with Tigo’s transformative journey and the company’s objective of offering customers the best digital experience,” said Tigo Chief Technical and Information Officer Jerome Albou.

“We are setting the pace among mobile service providers and catapulting technology to the highest heights of digital offering in the country.”

Tigo customers can now have access to the most reliable digital experience and ultra-fast downloads at normal Internet bundle rates. All that is required is a 4G+ enabled smartphone.

“We are proud that with the launch of 4G+ network, our company has again put Tanzania on a global telecommunications map,” added Tarik Boudiaf, Tigo’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“We are now competing with the developed nations who are currently rolling out 5G technology.”

While Tigo’s fast 4G network reaches speeds of up to 60Mbps, Tigo’s new 4G+ is twice as fast, reaching speeds of up to 120Mbps. This is a shared speed among subscribers latching in a specific site and the total speed is distributed among them.

Besides boasting the biggest 4G network that covers 22 cities across the country, the Tigo 4G+ network has now been rolled out in Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Morogoro, Moshi and Dodoma with ongoing expansion to other cities.
