Tigo, the GSM network operator in Ghana said at a recent press conference that its subscriber base has now passed the two million mark. This compares with roughly 3.9 million for the largest operator in the country, MTN. The company attributed its subscriber growth to efforts to reduce congestion on the network last year.
Mr. Ransford Nyarko, the Marketing Manager of Tigo said that "this is not to say that apart from the peak season Tigo does not have the capacity to reduce congestion before and after the peak season."
In an interview with The Chronicle, the Cooperate Affairs Manager of Tigo, Ms. Anita Erskine said, the success story of Tigo is base on the fact that the network engineering has being improved and as well as intense marketing also contributed to the current success.
Figures dated last September from the Mobile World record that ScanCom/MTN ended with 3.87 million customers - followed by Millicom/Tigo (1.5 million), Ghana Telecom (1.44 million) and finally Kasapa Telecom with 248,000 customers.
