TIGO plans to invest 100 million US dollars this year in upgrading its network and install new base stations in various parts of the country.
"This material investment will increase network capacity, improve coverage and enhance users' experience," Tigo said in a press release issued in Dar es Salaam.
"Access to the Internet will be more widely available in the country and our customers will experience faster connection speeds," the firm added.
Tigo General Manager Diego Gutierrez says the expansion, which is expected to be completed by end of this year, will spread to all 26 regions including, Lake Zone region, Northern and Southern regions, Mtwara, Iringa and Coast, giving Tigo the largest coverage footprint in the country.
"This investment demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality communications standards," said Mr Gutierrez.
"As a consumer-centric organisation, we want our customers, wherever they may be, to benefit from the most extensive network coverage and the highest possible quality of service. With this investment, more people across the country will have access to traditional mobile services but also to more innovative services such as Tigo Pesa and Tigo Internet," he said.
