Tigo Tanzania has entered into a partnership with with ride-sharing service Uber to enable its customers to use the Uber app for free without data charges on its network.

The first of its kind partnership will be beneficial to existing Uber riders and driver-partners and encourage more riders to use the Uber app. 

The two companies will be working together on products and promotions that aim to add value both to the existing and potential clients.

Tigo and Uber in Tanzania will soon announce more exciting offers to enable customers to interact with Uber in Dar es Salaam where Uber services are currently available.

Tigo is a robust brand in the Tanzanian market and we have a vested stake in introducing more efficient ways for customers to engage with the world around them. Uber is a strong addition to the growing range of products and services that our customers can enjoy in their daily lives.

Alfred Msemo, Country Manager, Uber 
We are excited about our partnership with Tigo in Tanzania which will enable all riders and driver-partners who have Tigo lines to use the Uber app on their mobile phones free of charge with no data costs.
