Tigo sets date for 3G/4G launch

24 Jul 2014

Tigo Chad has successfully tested 3G and 4G mobile network technologies and now plans to begin offering the services commercially from September or October this year, Jeune Afrique writes. Tigo, owned by Luxembourg-based Millicom International Cellular (MIC), will initially limit the service to the capital, N’Djamena. The cellco renewed its concession for a further ten years in June last year and has pledged to invest USD200 million over the next five years to develop its infrastructure.
