Commenting on the gains made in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency by the Tigo Ghana on Saturday, the Head of Marketing at Tigo, Tenu Awoonor, stated that this was a clear manifestation of the 'exceptional quality of service we offer our customers.'
Mr. Awoonor added that 'We believe that this success has been as a result of the tremendous benefits we offer consumers, some of which include quality network operation, lower tariffs, product bonuses, unlimited internet accesses and credits that last longer which results in enhanced value for money to all Tigo users.'

'Tigo has been in operations since 1991 and remains the most preferred mobile network with quality products and services based on affordability, accessibility and availability.'
Some of Tigo's products and services include Tigo SOS, Tigo cash , Tigo Life Insurance, Tigo Voice SMS, IDD calls, Free night calls, ring-back-tones amongst many others.
