DIGICEL TT rolled out its latest network LTE (Long Term Evolution) in fine style before the media and management of the organisation at Digicel Imax in One Woodbrook Place yesterday.

A short Digicel TT video speaking of the limitless possibilities that LTE can offer, stated: “We’ve come a long way to get to this point.

Even though your call quality wasn’t great in the process because we’ve been installing tons of new equipment, but we fine-tuned our network to deliver LTE to you.

“The wait is over. I’m very pleased to let you know that Trinidad and Tobago’s newest LTE network has arrived. Our network is packed with fast speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G, and it comes to you with approval from none other than Usain Bolt, our chief speed officer and the world’s fastest man.”

This means that customers will now enjoy glitch-free video streaming of their favourite online content on their smartphones or tablets, while using interactive apps at home or on-the-go.

It was also indicated that customers in north-west, east and central Trinidad, as well as east Tobago with LTE SIMs and is LTE compatible can enjoy the benefits of LTE.

However customers in south Trinidad and west Tobago will have to wait till the end of the year to enjoy the service.

Customers can also use Digicel’s LTE Checker at www.digicelgroup.com/tt to find out if their devices are supported by Digicel’s network, or else they can go to any of its stores and get an LTE Sim.

Digicel’s Penny Gomez, noting her company’s association with the culture of this country, invited guests to witness a dance featuring Andre and Rene Arneaud, who are expected to compete in the US-based World of Dance competition, in Los Angeles, USA later this month. She said they will be doing so with the support of Digicel.

Chandrika Samaroo, technical director, Digicel TT then shed more light on what the new LTE network is all about. He proudly said: “Welcome to Digicel’s LTE world of speed mobility and coverage.

Welcome to a world of blazing fast speed internet, seamless video streaming and highly responsive apps, Welcome to the new Digicel.”

He said in 2017, Digicel’s 2030 transformation programme was introduced with one of the pillars being to provide an amazing network experience for customers. As Digicel moves to broaden internet connectivity across TT they will soon provide an island-wide LTE network.

He said: “Simply put, we must connect the unconnected by putting our customers in control of their connectivity experience.”

As an introductory offer to new users joining the LTE network, they get 25 percent off for three months and a switch to Digicel’s LTE Network can get 25 per cent off for six months. There is also a d’Music app where over 30 million songs can be downloaded on one’s phone, tablet or PC, quick pick bundles and unlimited bundles with several features.
