The 4G high-speed internet service provides subscribers speeds of up to 100 Mbps and is the second 4G service launched by Milicom, after the initial roll-out in Colombia in December 2013.According to a statement from Milicom, Bolivia whose population stands at 10.5 million has more than 3 million internet users, with 95% accessing it via mobile connections. Tigo's 4G services will be offered on a $50 monthly shared plan package that allows connections to multiple devices via the Mifi link. Milicom also said that 50% of Bolivians will have access to the service and this will be expanded to 70% by 2018. 

“Today’s launch of the super high-speed service in Bolivia is our latest innovation in the country following the launch of our satellite TV service there in April. It represents our commitment to transforming lives with the digital lifestyle and we hope that the people in Bolivia will enjoy its benefits over the next few years.”
