Morogoro becomes the fourth region to have Airtel’s 4G Lite network communications after recent similar launches in Coast, Dar es Salaam and Dodoma regions as the telco targets to cover the whole country in the next few months.

Speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Airtel Tanzania’s Director of Communications Beatrice Singano said the 4G Lite network expansion targets the whole country as the telco continues investing in bringing reliable, innovative, relevant and affordable products and services to its customers.

“Morogoro remains one of important regions to our business. In addition, the region plays a big role in contributing to the country’s economy growth due to a number of industries that it hosts. By launch of the 4G network, we will definitely benefit residents of Morogoro,” Singano said.

She further noted that the 4G network expansion is in line of ‘Airtel mpya’ phenomena which focuses on commitment to fulfill conditions reached by the company and Treasury earlier this year.

“One such condition is that Airtel pay Treasury 8bn/- being a dividend for a period between January and August this year,” Singano added.

She pointed out that as the company continues to roll out its 4G network countrywide to improve quality of its services, it has also heavily invested in a single largest mobile money agents network through Airtel Money Branches.

“We have over 1,000 Airtel Money Branches across the country aimed at supporting financial inclusion by bringing Airtel services and products closer to our customers. Our plan is to continue to build a strong, reliable agent network with an array of services that can be accessed through our Airtel Money Branches in addition to traditional cash in and cash out,” the Airtel Tanzania Corporate Director noted.
