Accra, August 1st, 2018 – Mobile network operator, AirtelTigo has become the first service provider to launch data bundles with “no expiry” for new and existing pre-paid customers in the country.
Called the ‘Big Time Data Bundles’, customers will be able to get more data value than anywhere else for GHS 1, GHS 2, GHS 5 and GHS 10.
According to the Director of Market Growth at AirtelTigo, Pius Owusu-Tuffour, the bundles will allow customers who can now get 1.5 GB for only GHS 10, the freedom to watch movies online and browse their favourite news and entertainment websites.
The bundles will also enable customers to access their social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and others. The ‘Big Time Data Bundles’ which are available to pre-paid customers only can be purchased by dialling *111#. Customers can also purchase these through AirtelTigo Money or by using scratch cards.
With no daily, weekly or monthly validity constraints, AirtelTigo is giving customers more data without the worry about when it will expire.
“Our insights show that there has been a substantial boost in data usage among our customers. In response to this growing demand, our introduction of ‘Big Time Data Bundles’ with no expiry, gives more data to our customers to stay connected with family and friends,” said Mr Tuffour.
He concluded that the new bundles offer great value for money, adding that the company will continue to innovate and look for ways to delight its customers.

On March 3, 2017, Millicom International Cellular S.A., ‘Millicom’ and Bharti Airtel Limited ‘Airtel’, announced their intent to merge their operations in Ghana. This was subsequently approved by the government of Ghana on October 2, 2017. As per the shareholders agreement, Millicom and Airtel have equal ownership and governance rights in the combined entity which has been rebranded as AirtelTigo. AirtelTigo is the second largest Mobile Network Operator in Ghana with a combined customer base of approximately 10 million.
By integrating the two networks, the combined business is expected to provide Ghanaian customers with a major boost in both rural and urban network coverage – in turn translating into better voice quality, high speed data services and reinforced network stability and resilience. With the combined fibre footprint and increased data centres, enterprise customers including both, large corporations and SMEs, would have access to a diverse portfolio of world class solutions. Mobile Financial Services is also expected to be greatly enhanced with combined agent networks and platforms. www.airteltigo.com.gh
