Bolivian operator Tigo is owned by the international company Millicom Group. It is the second largest operator in the market of the country as its share is about 29%. You can successfully use Tigo SIM-cards to terminate GSM traffic but it is important to choose the best tariff plan for outgoing calls.
Prepaid SIM-cards from Tigo can be bought in the company's branded dealerships, as well as in other outlets (supermarkets, gas stations, street stalls, etc.). The cost of the starter package is $1.45. You can immediately start using the number but you must register the SIM-card within 5 days after activation, otherwise, it will be blocked.
In terms of termination, you just have enough time to use all the features of the starter package because the average lifespan of the card is 3 days. Top-up vouchers are sold in almost any outlets. Available denominations are 10, 30, 50 and 100 boliviano ($ 1.45, $ 4.3, $ 7.2, and $ 14.4 respectively).
At first glance, the tariffs for prepaid subscribers are not very profitable:
- Tarifa Normal. One minute costs $0.23 (from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.).
- Tarifa Reducida. One minute costs $0.14 (from 9:00 p.m.to 1:00 a.m.).
- Tarifa Super Reducida. One minute costs $0.11 (from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.).
However, Tigo has another offer for prepaid customers: Double Charge, which provides a 100% bonus for topping up. Therefore, by purchasing a SIM-card for $1.45 and topping up an account with $16, you will get $32 as the amount doubles. This is enough for 300 minutes of conversation from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., with the cost of the minute being $0.05. We recommend that you use Tarifa Super Reducida plan for terminating traffic, while simultaneously connecting Double Charge bonuses. You can make over $150 per channel.
We also recommend using the voip gsm termination solutions from GoAntiFraud to efficiently simulate human behavior. Generating incoming traffic, sending SMS, performing USSD requests, setting slots between calls and other tools will help to minimize the blocking of SIM-cards.
