Tigo Rwanda launches free Facebook with ‘Facebook Flex’

Tigo Rwanda is excited to announce the launch of ‘Facebook Flex’, a service that allows every Tigo customer to access Facebook for free. This follows a recent agreement signed between Tigo Rwanda and Facebook, which aims to increase digital access for the over three million Tigo customers in Rwanda. 


Only available to Tigo Rwanda customers, Facebook Flex provides free access to Facebook either through the Facebook app on Android or via facebook.com on all data-capable devices on Tigo. Facebook Flex enables Tigo customers to control their data usage when using Facebook through a button that switches access between Free and Paid modes.


Announcing Facebook Flex, Yaw Ankoma Agyapong, Tigo Rwanda Chief Commercial Officer said:


“At Tigo we believe in Internet For All. With Facebook Flex, even more Rwandans will be able to enjoy Facebook because you don’t need to have a smartphone or balance to enjoy the service. So, no matter where you live, as long as you are a Tigo data customer you will be able to like, comment and post as much as you want on your Facebook account”.
