Tigo launches DTH in Paraguay

Telecommunications company Tigo (Millicom) has commercially launched its DTH service in Paraguay, in Caacupé, Ciudad del Este and Encarnación.  In the coming weeks, it will launch in Concepción and Coronel Oviedo.

“The deployment of this technology will be in phases and in the coming months we will cover the entire national territory,” said Maximiliano Bellassai, Tigo’s business manager, according to site Paraguay.com. The offer includes two plans: Familiar (for Gs 135,000/USD 23, according to its website in the region of Alto Paraná) and Full HD (Gs 170,000/USD 29).

Tigo has 1,200 employees deploying the service in both the technical and commercial areas. It also has 300 points of sale in the cities where it is already available.

Tigo obtained its license for DTH in late 2016, which generated the immediate claim of the Association of Cable Operators of the Interior (ACIP in Spanish), which considers that the company has a dominant position in the market. Tigo also offers in Paraguay cable TV as well as telephony and Internet.
