Digicel Bermuda has announced plans to offer a HSPA upgrade early next year with the network deployment already under way.
Making the announcement on stage on the final night of the Bermuda Music Festival to a capacity crowd Wayne Caines, CEO of Digicel Bermuda said; "From next year, Digicel's Bigger, Better 3G+ Network will be the fastest network available in Bermuda. Digicel always sets new standards in everything it does - and this move is no different.
"Our 3G+ network will use the very latest in 3G technology which deliver speeds that are a number of times faster than the standard 3G speeds that customers in Bermuda have available. To ensure our customers always get the best, we have chosen what is known as "Evolved HSPA technology" - which is only in use by twelve other networks across the globe. That means Digicel customers will enjoy ground breaking internet speeds on their handsets and access to the biggest and best network wherever they are on the island and at an affordable price."
In addition to launching its 3G+ network, Digicel will continue to maintain and enhance its data-enabled island-wide EDGE network.
