Tigo: the digital best of everything

Discover one of the most dynamic digital lifestyle brands at work.

It feels right that Tigo's name should derive from the Spanish word "contigo", which means "with you".

Because Tigo has been in Africa and Latin America from the beginning, supporting the digital transformation. It works hard to keep this life-changing process as human, user-friendly and life-enhancing as possible.

Its success has made it an established, integral part of millions of people's lives particularly as mobile data use begins to soar and our customers increasingly adopt the smartphone. In 2014 the TNS annual survey of African brands put Tigo in the continent's top ten (Africa Brand Survey 2014).

Through Tigo and its sub-brands - such as Smart, Star and Business - we want our customers to enjoy their digital lifestyle and smile, whoever they are and wherever they may be.

Tigo delivers affordable, available and accessible products in an easy-to-use, customer-focussed way, with an international footprint that is unique.

Our content, communications and data platforms offer entertainment (video on demand, music, TV), bundled services and solutions, mobile money, internet and broadband. More and more, Tigo can bundle and provide all of these at once.

After a highly successful start to 2015, the way ahead for Tigo and its sub-brands is full of opportunities. Greater numbers of people are choosing smart phones over feature phones - we sold almost 4.5 million in 2014  - and Tigo is there to support and assist. We introduce new applications and tailor them increasingly to individual and local communities, guiding our customers with our instantly-recognisable set of Tigo icons, so nobody gets lost along the way. 

The key to the brand's success lies in its reputation both as friendly, honest, innovative and involved: as sponsors of major events and sporting champions, as supporters of valuable social causes, and as a creator and innovator of unique digital networks.
