Digicel customer numbers reach 11 million

Digicel has announced that it has hit the 11 million customer mark across its 32 markets worldwide.

Digicel achieved 10% subscriber growth year-on-year and increased its market share quarter-on-quarter in all of its major markets in El Salvador, Haiti, Jamaica, Papua New Guinea and Trinidad & Tobago.

In the last few weeks, Digicel launched two new technologies with the rollout of 3G+ in Bermuda and the introduction of WiMAX technology to Jamaica with the launch of Digicel 4G Broadband.

Colm Delves, Digicel Group CEO, said: "It’s an exciting time for us. We are very pleased with the continued growth we are achieving across all of our markets and our new technology launches in Bermuda and Jamaica have been really well received and are set to change the mobile and broadband landscapes in those markets."

Digicel launched in Jamaica nine and a half years ago.
