PRESS RELEASE: Digicel BVI has kicked off the New Year with the launch of BVI’s fastest Long-term Evolution (LTE) network.

The launch marks the first phase of the company’s investment in its LTE infrastructure and will include the expansion of Digicel’s network with 14 new sites.

The activation of the LTE network is aimed at equipping BVI with the most modern, world-class communications, and entertainment infrastructure and service.

With the activation, customers in parts of Tortola and Virgin Gorda are expected to see ‘lightning fast’ LTE; on average up to 10 times faster than 4G.

The LTE network was officially switched on by General Manager of Digicel BVI, Kevin Gordon.

“BVI has been anticipating the launch of Digicel 4G LTE, and we are pleased to present this ‘game changer.’ We’re focused on always delivering the most advanced technologies to our customers, and the activation of the LTE network in BVI is another significant step in this direction.”

“Our stores on Tortola and Virgin Gorda are now offering LTE-capable devices. As part of our LTE roll-out, we are pleased to announce our first ever Digicel home solution which offers lightning-fast internet with affordable packages starting from as low as $79 per month. As an introductory offer, all LTE Home Plan customers will receive a free LTE router, while customers who sign up for our 200GB or Unlimited Plan options will get half off the first two months subscription,” said Gordon.

He continued: “Digicel Mobile prepaid and postpaid customers can enjoy LTE lightning-fast speeds at no extra charge. To back the confidence we have in our new network we are offering a seven-day money back guarantee to any customer who is not satisfied with our LTE service.” The network officially got the thumbs up from Digicel’ s Chief Speed Officer, Usain Bolt, after successful speed testing the network. Digicel customers now have the opportunity to experience the territory’s fastest LTE network.”

Gordon further stated: “BVI’s fastest network just got faster, and we are rapidly increasing the number of Digicel customers experiencing the service, and are committed to updating everyone as we deliver coverage throughout the territory.”

LTE is the very latest in mobile technology, capable of providing more mobile data at the fastest speeds to connect the growing range of Internet-enabled devices. Digicel LTE is operating at 700 Mhz, which is the best spectrum for LTE. Digicel’ s world-class service brings high definition streaming to mobile devices so customers can enjoy the sharpest picture quality, making buffering a thing of the past.

The implementation of this LTE technology means customers can experience faster surfing, streaming, sharing, and more rapid responses when navigating apps – allowing customers to do even more with faster access to the Internet for both leisure and business.

Gordon concluded: “Digicel prepaid and postpaid customers can access LTE service using an LTE-capable device and SIM card.  Customers are encouraged to visit the nearest Digicel store for assistance, and a list of Digicel LTE plans and pricing is available on our website:”
