Tigo launches 4G technology

Tigo Tanzania subscribers can now enjoy mobile ultra broadband services following the launch of 4G technology.

According to wise geek website, Fourth Generation (4G) mobile technology is a set of standards for providing broadband Internet access to devices like cellphones and tablets.

The main difference between it and previous standards is a big increase in data transfer speeds and the types of media people can access with it.

“We recognize our customers’ ever changing demands and need for better, faster and quality internet services and are constantly seeking to provide them with the best user experience in all our products in the most affordable way possible.

This innovation is part of our on-going network upgrade programme,” Tigo’s General Manager, Mr Diego Gutierrez said over the weekend.

Mr Gutierrez said that the introduction of the 42Mbps super-fast Internet speed was a testament of their pursuit for innovation and need to stay ahead of the rest in delivering top notch customer service experience and satisfaction.

Ms Mercy Swai, a Kimara resident and Tigo subscriber of over three years said that she was thrilled with the news of the launch because it would now mean that downloading files over a wireless network would be quicker, access to the internet would be quicker and she could now conduct video conferences on her mobile phone without a lot of hassle.

Information Technology specialist, Mr Kay Haruna said that he was a little skeptical about the news because new frequencies ultimately meant new components in telecommunication towers.

He was also skeptical because that could also mean higher data prices for consumers and that the new technology will mean having a new device that can support it.

The launch took place via an interactive online Skype video press conference that connected four regions with a keynote speech by Mr Gutierrez who delivered his remarks from his office at the company’s headquarters in Dar es Salaam.
