BUSINESS BYTE: Digicel partners with ZTE to expand 4G LTE networks across the Caribbean and Central America

Wednesday 29th March, 2017: Kingston Jamaica–Digicel announced today an agreement with ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, to expand its 4G LTE networks across its 26 markets in the Caribbean and Central America.

Deploying ZTE’s world-class 4G LTE solutions will see Digicel delivering the highest-performance mobile broadband services to all its customers across the region.

ZTE’s innovative 4G LTE solutions including Uni-RAN will help Digicel upgrade and optimize its infrastructure as part of an ongoing network transformation program, providing subscribers with superior mobile internet connectivity and coverage. ZTE Uni-RAN solutions will support network evolution at Digicel by enabling deployment of next-generation digital services and business innovations.

Deployed by mobile carriers around the world, ZTE’s Uni-RAN solution increases the network operation efficiency by prolonging the lifecycle of devices through network upgrades and smooth evolution. Based on ZTE’s SDR (Software Defined Radio) technology, Uni-RAN protects operators’ investment and dramatically reduces network costs and increases the stability and reliability of network operation.

Digicel recently announced its Digicel 2030 global transformation program promising customers a completely new communications and entertainment experience made possible by a more agile, customer-centric application of resources and investment.

    MR. JEFFREY BAPTISTE. Stay “resting on your Laruels” as GM of FLOW and wait until Digicel is about to put FLOW out of business in Dominica to get your house in order. The way things are going it seems we will eventually return to the day of a telecommunication monopoly in Dominica. FLOW Dominica needs to step up their game else they will be the first one to be fried by Digicel.

      …..Flow rested on their laurels long time when they had the chance to go into broadband and TV before Digicel. But they allowed Digicel to purchase SAT and that is what killing Flow right now. They getting blows on top up because more people using broadband (wifi) for their WhatsApp and so on. And where they getting the broadband? From Digicel Play because it cheaper, and it faster. SMH…..
