With new Tigo promotion rates, a new subscriber gets an airtime of 400RWF and each call on any network gets a discount of 30RWF per minute.
This comes at a time when Airtel, (the newly and third telecommunication company to be introduced in Rwanda after MTN and Tigo), has been attracting new subscribers with its cheaper calling rates and 100% free airtime bonus.
Airtel Rwanda, a subsidiary of Indian telecommunications giant, Bharti Airtel, has compelled its competitors to lower their calling and data rates. Since the company arrived in the town of Kibuye a few months ago, one out of three phone holders has at least bought airtel sim card. One subscriber told (www.itumanaho.com) that with Airtel, “life is good”.
By November 2012, Airtel had registered a total of 184,422 subscribers since its incursion in March 2012. Leading operator, MTN Rwanda has a total of 3,229,672 million users while Tigo comes second with 1,741,603 million subscribers.
