Accra β€” TIGO, the mobile network operator, has announced a multimillion dollar investment programme to improve its network and services for its growing number of customers.

Initially, the company will invest more than $100 000 a day in the upgrade until the end of October.

During the first phase of investment, the company will commence a fibre infrastructure project to improve the redundancies of its transmission network between Takoradi and Kumasi.

This will make Tigo's service to its over 4 million customers even more reliable and less vulnerable to interruptions caused by accidental or illegal cuts to its underground fibre cables.

Future phases will include investment in additional coverage and capacity for Tigo's voice and internet services.

This is in addition to the investment in an extensive programme of staff training and the modernization and opening of new stores across the country.

Tigo's General Manager, Roshi Motman, said the investments demonstrated the company's commitment to keep improving the quality of its services to consumers.

β€œThe company is going through a rapid transformation and these upgrades will enable us to become increasingly competitive and attractive to customers. Ghana is a country with a great economic outlook, and Tigo is a growing force which will help maintain its steady growth.”
