Lumitel (Viettel Burundi) Prepaid Plan, Internet Package, Offer, and More

Viettel Burundi’s Lumitel is a mobile operator that is owned by the military-backed Viettel Group of Vietnam. Its launch in 2016 saw it attract an impressive one million customers within a mere three months. Lumitel made significant investments in a fiber backbone network and now operates the largest 3G network in Burundi, which is available in all districts (collines).

In 2016, Lumitel became the first mobile operator to launch a 4G/LTE network in six provinces of Burundi simultaneously. These provinces included the central parts of Bujumbura, Gitega, Ngozi, Rumonge, Makamba, and Muyinga. This expansion helped Lumitel capture over 50% of the mobile market in Burundi in just two years.
