Millicom International which operates mobile networks under the Tigo brand becomes the first operator to launch 4G LTE service in Tanzania. The 4G LTE service is initially rolled out in the Northern Tanzanian tourism city of Arusha, popularly known as ‘the Geneva of Africa’. The service provider says that the new network 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. 

Hellen Elibariki, a Tour Guide based at the Northern Tanzanian tourism city of Arusha, said that “working in the tourism industry means I have local and international contacts that need fast and efficient communication. The Tigo 4G has really simplified my communication with my contacts because now (I am) able to transfer large data faster, conduct clearer and seamless skype calls and give my contacts, especially prospective tourists, large amounts of up-to-the-minute information about our services and this has started boosting our business".
