Digicel Group today announced that it has received
the required approvals from the Government and
regulatory authorities for the purchase of TRES
Networks in Curacao, and is now moving swiftly to
complete the transaction.
“This is an exciting time for Digicel Curacao and
TRES Networks, as together we are better
positioned to serve our customers,” said John
Suranyi, CEO, Digicel Play, Caribbean and Central
America. “As always, our emphasis is on ensuring
that our customers benefit from the best services
and the latest innovation, so we are looking forward
to forging ahead with plans to expand our suite of
products and services for our customers in Curacao.
“We are excited about joining the Digicel team which allows us to move forward with our
plans to extend the only true Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) network to other neighborhoods
on the island. This does not only enable more people to enjoy the highest quality Internet,
TV and Telephony services but also to enjoy it at the fastest speeds available on the Island,”
said Frank de Fremery, CEO of TRES Networks.
TRES Networks is a fixed and international long distance telecommunications operator
and distributor of digital television and entertainment services. It provides residential
and business customers with state-of-the-art high-speed internet, voice and digital
services over the island’s first and only 100% fibre-optic network. Additionally,
with its all fibre-optic network, TRES Networks supports Digicel’s ongoing focus on
helping customers compete by delivering them the most advanced business solutions.
Suranyi continues, “Digicel is already investing heavily in increasing the capacity of our
service as we continue to evolve into a total communications and entertainment provider
- and the acquisition of TRES Networks will provide the framework to broaden that even
further, growing our business, creating more jobs and investing in the future of Curacao’s
