Tigo Rwanda makes 4G available on all enabled smartphones

Millicom subsidiary Tigo Rwanda is launching 4G internet services accessible on all enabled smartphones.

This marks Tigo as the first operator to offer its customers on-the-go access to 4G internet on their phones.

Tongai Maramba, Chief Executive Officer of Tigo Rwanda, said: “Transform Africa is the right platform for us to present the biggest 4G LTE news since 4G in Rwanda. Allowing our customers to take 4G high speed internet with them without interrupting voice services aligns well with the summit focus this year – ‘Accelerating digital innovation’.”

Cynthia Gordon, Executive Vice President, CEO Africa Division, Millicom, noted: “This launch in Rwanda is part of our digital lifestyle drive across Africa to deliver great connectivity and great services for our customers.”

Han-Sung Yoon, Chief Executive Officer of Olleh Rwanda Networks commented:   “Over the past one year since 4G commercial launch, oRn’s critical mission has been expansion. The 4G network is expanding towards our target coverage of 95% of the country by 2017; the service expansion is on track with such partnership with Tigo Rwanda.”
