Digicel customers now pay the same low rates when travelling as they do in Jamaica with the ‘Same Rates a Yaad, Same Rates Abroad’
Kingston, Jamaica, Friday, April 5, 2013: Telecommunications company Digicel is making it easier and more affordable for customers to stay connected with family and friends while traveling overseas with the launch of its new ‘Same Rates a Yaad, Same Rates Abroad’ roaming plan.
Digicel’s prepaid and post-paid customers can browse the internet, talk and send text messages while roaming in the Caribbean and the USA for the same standard local rates as they do in Jamaica, plus they do not have to pay to receive calls or texts.
According to Richard Fraser, Chief Operating Officer for Digicel, “Same Rates a Yaad, Same Rates Abroad” is another demonstration of how Digicel continues to innovate and give value to our customers. Now with the significant savings that customers enjoy with this plan, they can relax and simply roam like they’re home while travelling in most Caribbean countries and anywhere in the US.
With Digicel’s Same Rates a Yaad, Same Rates Abroad plan, prepaid customers pay a low subscription fee of just J$1,000 for a 7-day plan. This allows customers to make calls and browse the internet at the same standard local rates while roaming abroad as they do in Jamaica. As an introductory offer, they also get to enjoy the benefits of 100 FREE texts while roaming.
Postpaid customers pay a subscription fee of only J$2,000 for a 30-day plan to talk text and browse the internet while roaming in the USA and Caribbean and pay the same standard local usage rates as they do back home in Jamaica.
“We recognise that we all have an increasing need to stay connected when travelling, so we’re very excited to be offering these plans to both our prepaid and post-paid customers,” noted Fraser. “We also look forward to seeing how these reduced roaming rates for Digicel customers help to advance the government’s vision of creating a more unified Caribbean through more affordable communication”
