MIC launches Honduran 3G service

2 Sep 2008

Millicom International Cellular (MIC) has announced the launch of 3G mobile services in Honduras, partnering similar service launches in Guatemala and Bolivia, and planned launches in Paraguay, El Salvador later this week and Colombia before the end of the year. MIC says that its local subsidiary Tigo (formerly Celtel Honduras) will offer a comprehensive range of 3G services including mobile broadband internet access via laptops, mobile TV, music and video downloads and video calling.

Tigo is not the only operator offering UMTS-based mobile services to the Honduran population. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, in February this year America Movil (AM’s) Honduran unit Sercom de Honduras (Claro) launched a 3G service in Honduras with national coverage. The offering, launched in partnership with Ericsson of Sweden, is promising data transfer speeds of above 512kbps.
