Don’t lose what you don’t use

Today, the total communications and entertainment provider announced that prepaid customers can browse, stream, share and chat to their heart’s content on Digicel’s 4G LTE network and rollover their unused data to their renewed plan – without losing their data or worrying about overages.  

All prepaid customers once on an active data plan can enjoy rollover data and will find it easy to understand and easy to use.

Rates dropped during network issues: CEO

The issue started at 2pm on Friday, preventing customers from purchasing Digicel’s data and voice bundles.

CEO Colin Stone said it was brought to their attention immediately, where Digicel responded by dropping voice and data out of bundle rates to enable customers to still use the service.

“As well as that, we saw people could not buy the TV services that we offer,” Stone stated. “So we made TV free-to-air for the weekend. That way customers could still keep abreast of current events; they could still watch their TV during that period.”

Issues resolved, services return to normal: Digicel

Colin Stone CEO of Digicel, said; “We apologise to all our customers for the interruption to our bundle purchasing and any inconvenience that they had.

“We understand our customers rely on service and take that responsibility very seriously and are focused on doing everything we can to ensure that we deliver great service. We will be reviewing which customers were impacted and we give service credits to those customers during this week.
