Kigali, Rwanda –, Tigo Rwanda has announced that their customers can now call anyone on any of the 3 networks in the country at a rate of only Frw 35 per minute.
The same affordable rate applies to all calls made to any operator in USA, India, China and Canada.
Announcing the launch of the new rate, Yaw Ankoma Agyapong, Tigo Rwanda’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “The launch of this tariff is a response to our customers’ need for a communications product that offers great value and a simple way to stay in touch with friends and family here in Rwanda and also abroad.”
These new rates are available for all new and existing customers of the popular network.
In addition to the reduced call rates, Tigo customers will also be able to send Tigo-to-Tigo SMSs for Frw 15 per SMS. After a customer pays for the first 3 Tigo-to-Tigo SMSs in a day, they can send Tigo-to-Tigo SMSs for free for the rest of the day until midnight.
