One of Sierra Leone’s leading mobile telecommunications network, TiGO has now made it possible for their customers to access the Internet all over Sierra Leone as long as that area of the country has TiGO coverage. This was disclosed by Mr. Choe Miller, TiGO’s Marketing Manager.

The cost of browsing is very minimal at only Le3 per kilobyte and Le3,000 per megabyte respectively. The capacity of this facility he says, has been increased and can be browsed from anywhere in the country. TiGO he also mentioned, is offering bonus credits with down loading facility every weekend to the first 150 customers who log on to TiGO’s Internet server. "Even if the customer is in Pujehun or Moyamba, they can get free time for Internet browsing and check their emails or visit the BBC website with their telephones." Miller enthused.

TiGO, Mr. Miller maintained, offers a wide range of other facilities including: ringing-back tone, for which interested customers are requested to register for a fee of only Le1,000 and an additional fee of Le 6,000 to down load a song of choice for use as a ringing tone.
