Digicel Fiji has launched its LTE network, with coverage in the greater Suva area, Nadi including Denarau Island and the wider Lautoka area.
The company said that this is the cornerstone of the recent investment of $70 million to expand and upgrade its high speed data network - which is the most significant investment since the operator launched in 2008. The roll-out also continues on the existing network to bring nationwide 3G+ coverage.
In making the announcement at the Digicel Headquarters in Suva, CEO Darren McLean confirmed that Digicel is delivering the biggest 4G network which will deliver superfast wireless broadband initially in key population areas of Suva, Nadi and Lautoka.
"Our customers are now able to access world class internet speeds at home, work and on the go. The demand for superfast wireless data network is growing in Fiji, more and more people are now able to afford smartphones and their need for data is enormous. Digicel 4G offers the highest speeds possible over a mobile network."
The $70 million investment will also benefit thousands of Unwired 4G customers. "We have seen phenomenal demand for our Unwired service from all over Fiji and we are going to expand the coverage to new parts of the country for this service over the coming weeks. Speeds will also improve."
