DAR-ES-SALAAM, (CAJ News) – TIGO subscribers in Tanzania can now enjoy the fastest internet connection following the unveiling of the company’s 4G Long Term Evolution service in the country.

The technology is said to be about five times faster than the 3G technology currently available in the Tanzanian market.

Tigo Tanzania General Manager, Diego Gutierrez, lauded the 4G LTE as ‘the first of its kind in Africa’ and reiterated the telecom’s commitment in improving the quality and coverage of its network and bring world-class digital products and services to Tanzania.

The Tigo Tanzania 4G LTE enables customers , unlike with the currently available 3G network, to surf at faster speeds, download content from the internet and make skype calls from their mobile phones and laptops.

It will further enable Tigo customers to wade through high-data connection because it ensures real-time sharing of large files and media streaming.

More so, it has a near-immediate delivery of time-sensitive data such as real-time interaction or transactions.

The 4G LTE network offers faster and higher speeds of data transfer, faster response times from the network and increased overall network capacity.

It significantly enhances the customer experience for video streaming or conferencing and can accommodate more applications such as high definition content, video blogs, interactive games and video downloads on social networking sites.
