As anticipated by NexTV News Latam in January, Digicel prepares to launch its Pay-TV and broadband services Digicel Play in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. The company promised to invest USD 84 million and USD 305 million, respectively, for laying FTTH infrastructure.
Digicel, which has been offering telephony in this country for 10 years, will provide “the most advanced online, television and digital service”, according to the CEO of the company in Trinidad and Tobago, Sacha Thompson, quoted by local newspaper Newsday on the announcement made at the offices of Port-of-Spain, capital of that country.
Digicel currently has Pay-TV and broadband operations in eight Caribbean markets (Anguilla, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, Montserrat, Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago and Turks and Caicos Islands), along with telephony in a total of 27 countries in the region. According to what NexTV News Latam could find out, the company also plans to begin delivering its IPTV service in Bermuda in 2016.
