Digicel Fiji has announced the launch of its new Superfast 4G data network in key areas highlighting some of the benefits of the $70m investment announced last month.
Digicel Fiji announcedthe launch of its Superfast 4G network. The 4G services will be available in the greater Suva area, Nadi including Denarau Island and the wider Lautoka area. This is the cornerstone of the recent investment of $70 million to expand and upgrade its high speed data network – which is the most significant investment since the operator launched in 2008. The roll-out also continues on the existing network to bring nationwide 3G+ coverage.
In making the announcement at the Digicel Headquarters in Suva on Thursday, August 14, CEO Darren McLean stated that with this huge investment Digicel had built the largest 4G network in the country. He promised that this will improve internet access and the customer experience for the people of Fiji.
“The very latest in technology, Digicel 4G broadband is superfast, accessible, affordable and reliable and is underpinned by Digicel’s commitment to best value, best network, best service” added McLean.
“We are ready to deliver the best for Fiji. Only six years ago, Digicel entered the mobile market in Fiji and turned it on its head. Today we have a strong customer base which is growing everyday as customers connect to the Bigger, Better Network and benefit from the best service and the best value available.”
McLean confirmed that Digicel is delivering the biggest 4G network which will deliver superfast wireless broadband initially in key population areas of Suva, Nadi and Lautoka.
“Our customers are now able to access world class internet speeds at home, work and on the go. The demand for superfast wireless data network is growing in Fiji, more and more people are now able to afford smartphones and their need for data is enormous. Digicel 4G offers the highest speeds possible over a mobile network. My message to those who are not already Digicel customers – it’s time to move.”
Digicel Fiji has been the key driver in the evolution of Fijian telecommunications landscape, since its launch in 2008 call rates have been reduced dramatically.
The $70 million investment will also benefit thousands of Unwired 4G customers. “We have seen phenomenal demand for our Unwired service from all over Fiji and we are going to expand the coverage to new parts of the country for this service over the coming weeks. Speeds will also improve.”
Digicel Fiji has also introduced 4G smartphones from today, as low as $299.00 and great data rates, which are compatible for both 3G+ and 4G networks. Customers can get connected on Digicel wireless data network for as low as $1.49 for 300Mb or get a seven-day pass for $5.99 for 800Mb.
