Tigo Paraguay to deploy USF-funded services in Gran Chaco by 2017

8 Dec 2014

Tigo is poised to extend fixed, mobile and data connectivity to the Paraguayan areas of the sparsely populated Gran Chaco region, which also spans eastern Bolivia, northern Argentina and a portion of the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. According to TeleSemana, Tigo was the only company to lodge a bid in Conatel’s Universal Service Fund (USF) tender, and will receive PYG21.66 million (USD4.63 million) from the government to support the 24-month rollout. Tigo expects the deployment to start next year and conclude in 2017.
