Tigo, Zantel firms launch new service

Tigo and Zantel have officially launched their mobile money interoperability service in Tanzania.

The service will open up a number of mobile money transactions between subscribers of the two telecom operators. 

In addition to transactions within their own network, EzyPesa and TigoPesa customers are now able to send and receive cash direct to and from customers’ friends and families on their partner networks across the country.

The move is an implementation of a project that was announced earlier this year by EzyPesa, TigoPesa and Airtel Money, according to a statement availed to the media yesterday.

There is no surcharge for sending money across networks and charges are priced the same as sending within their home network. 

Customers receiving money from another network can cash out from their own network agents and no longer have to find agents from the other network.
