Tango SA, a luxembourgian subsidiary of the Belgian telco Belgacom Group, provides fixed and mobile voice services and DSL services in Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. As the second mobile operator in Luxembourg, the company markets its mobile offers under the "Tango" brand.

Launched in 1998, Tango was the first company to offer UMTS in 2002. In 2005, Tango offered its customers ADSL and HSDPA services for the first time.

Originally operated by Tele2, Belgacom finalized the acquisition of this company in August 2008. Belgacom also acquired the fixed and mobile activities of Tele2 in Liechtenstein.

Since March 2009 Tango is partner of Vodafone.[2]

Tango launched LTE in October 2012.[3] At the end of 2013 Tango had 280.000 customers.[1]

Tango Liechtenstein[edit]

Tango Liechtenstein was sold by Belgacom to Swiss telco Unify Nederland BV in December 2009.

Competitors[edit]

Tango is the second largest of Luxembourg's three mobile telecommunications operators. It competes with Orange Luxembourg (formerly VOX mobile) and POST Luxembourg.
