Digicel Bermuda says that it has awarded a contract to Ericsson for the deployment of a HSPA network upgrade. The contract is worth USD9 million, and deployment has already commenced.
Digicel Bermuda CEO, Wayne Caines, said of the announcement: "With the launch of 3G+ from Digicel, Bermuda joins only 12 other countries in the world who have upgraded to this elite new technology and it will put us firmly on the map for any potential businesses or investors looking at Bermuda as a base. In addition, our customers will benefit from a network that offers the fastest speeds and better quality of calls with widespread coverage. Our team is working around the clock to rollout the state-of-the-art 3G+ network which we look forward to launching in the coming months."
Figures from the Mobile World analysts shows that Digicel Bermuda ended last year with 33,000 subscribers. This represented a market share of 36% in the small island nation.
