The CEO of Millicom Africa Cynthia Gordon has emphasised the remarkable growth opportunities in data and Tigo’s commitment to giving customers access to superior high speed internet services.

“We were the first to launch 4G in three operations in Africa including Tanzania, Chad and Rwanda and have seen exponential growth in our data revenues – close to 34% in Q2 2016. We are exploring options to giving customers 4G services in Ghana,” she said.

While in Ghana, Gordon, called on the Minister for Communications, Dr. Omane Boamah, who expressed his commitment to ensuring fairness among the players in the telecom industry and was optimistic that the early introduction of key enablers such as a technology neutral unified license will support universal usage of spectrum. He believed this would be a key factor to growing and supporting government’s economic development efforts.

The Millicom Africa Chief also met with the executives of the National Communications Authority, the NCA to discuss further advancements in technology. She was impressed with the vision to develop the market and the high levels of support and cooperation.

“We share a common passion to a working partnership for the benefits of mobile broadband to Ghanaians and this will accelerate GDP growth and socio-economic development,” she explained.

“With our technology developments and ongoing efforts, we will continue to grow our market share and complement our existing portfolio of services including Tigo Cash which currently has a registered base of 3.2 million customers. In addition to this, Tigo Business will continue to develop strong and viable mobile and fixed solutions to Ghana’s underserved enterprise sector,” she added.
