Tigo Bolivia claims ‘nationwide’ 4G network

17 Jun 2015

Bolivian fixed and mobile operator Tigo is now claiming ‘nationwide’ coverage for its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular network following the extension of its footprint to the city of Cobija in the northern department of Pando. Tigo now has at least one city covered in each of Bolivia’s eleven departments, including recent additions Riberalta and Guayaramerin in the Beni department. Previously, these areas were covered only by 2G networks, Tigo claims. The firm said in April that it expects its investments for 2015 to reach USD130 million, surpassing its initial projection of USD100 million, and well up on the 2014 total of USD85 million. Tigo’s LTE-based services were introduced in July 2014, and last month the firm reported that the high speed offering was available in 26 cities.
