Kingston, Jamaica – June 16, 2016: Within a week of activating Jamaica’s first LTE network, Digicel is reporting that just over seven thousand customers are now enjoying the blazing-fast mobile internet speeds. The total communication and entertainment provider says the bulk of activations came from customers in Kingston and St. Andrew, with the rest from Montego Bay. The figure includes existing customer sign-ups, subscribers who have switched to Digicel and persons roaming while visiting Jamaica.
“At this rate, Digicel LTE is quickly becoming the speed of choice for customers. Our value-packed LTE bundles with generous amounts of data, anywhere minutes and SMS, are also being warmly received,” CEO of Digicel Jamaica, David Butler shared.
With speeds ten times faster than 4G, newly subscribed customers have already begun raving about the faster download and upload speeds along with the ability to seamlessly view crystal clear High Definition videos. A number of them have posted screenshots of the superior Digicel LTE experience via popular social media sites.
LTE subscribers have told Digicel they signed up for LTE to access the convenience of a faster network that allows them to access higher quality content that their devices are capable of handling when they want it and where they want it.
