Tigo Honduras introduces 4G LTE services

10 Dec 2014

Tigo Honduras has commercially launched Long Term Evolution (LTE) services for pre- and post-paid smartphone and USB modem users in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula and La Ceiba. Potential clients can sign up to one of two monthly pre-paid plans – ‘Paquete Internet Semana’ comes with 2.5GB of data allowance and costs HNL200 (USD9.47), while ‘Paquete Internet Mes y Music’, which provides 5.5GB of data, is priced at HNL565. Post-paid users meanwhile can sign up to one of seven ‘Planes Smart’; the introductory plan which comes with 1GB of data and offers downlink speeds of 2Mbps, is priced at USD40 per month, while the premium USD120 plan provides 5Mbps access with an 8GB data allowance.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, in October 2013 Tigo was awarded LTE-suitable spectrum by telecoms regulator Comision Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Conatel), comprising 2×20MHz paired blocks in the 1710MHz-1730MHz and 2110MHz-2130MHz bands; the company paid USD12.055 million for the authorisation. Under the terms set out by the licence, Tigo is required to establish and operate a 4G network in all major cities by 2016, equivalent to around 15% of the country’s territory.
