Although Bogotá, as the capital, is one of the cities with the highest internet connection, not all homes have access to it. Although the economic factor is one of the most important reasons why some families do not have internet, coverage by companies such as Claro, Tigo, ETB, is also a key factor.
In order to reach more corners of the city, Millicom, parent company of Tigo Colombia, announced that the company recently signed a wholesale network access agreement with Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (“ETB”). Although the companies did not go into details about the operation of each one, it could be deduced that ETB will provide the service of antennas from which Tigo will be able to provide. In this way, Millicom’s service operator in Colombia will be able to provide an optimal service to Bogota citizens.

Under the terms of the agreement, Tigo Colombia will be able to offer Tigo-branded broadband Internet, subscription television, telephony and over-the-top (OTT) services to residential customers and small businesses through the fiber network up to the home (FTTH) of ETB, with a coverage of 1.5 million homes in Bogotá.
This alliance with ETB, together with Tigo Colombia’s own network infrastructure and its other existing wholesale agreements, will allow the company to reach the vast majority of potential clients in Bogotá. This represents an increase of more than 20% in the commercial scope of Tigo Colombia’s home services portfolio.
