Tigo increases prices in Bolivia

Telecommunications company Tigo (Millicom) has increased the price of its cable and Internet plans in Bolivia “due to the programming costs”, according to local Página Siete newspaper.
Tigo increased the prices of cable and Internet services by Bo$ 11 (USD 1.5) and Bo$ 19 (USD 3). In a statement, the company explains that there was an “increase in programming, in the maintenance costs of programming and improvements in the service.” In this sense, the company has acquired the rights to broadcast the soccer World Cup in Russia through its channel Tigo Sports.
Tigo informed that the change in rates came into effect this month, complies with current regulations and is regulated by the Authority for the Regulation and Control of Telecommunications and Transport (ATT).
