Two if it?s Postpaid, One if it?s Prepaid ? DIGICEL IS COMING, DIGICEL IS COMING: Panama, Solomon Isles & BVI

In late July, we told you about Denis O’Brien’s forays in the Caribbean and his plans on the other side of the world – now, they’re coming true… Hundreds of millions poured into Latin America, as Digicel forays into the British Virgin Isles

Digicel BVI today announced that it has entered into arrangements with two of the territory?s top entertainers to provide promotional services for the company.

Multi year contracts were signed recently with singing sensation Ouida Nisbett and popular disc jockey Alvin Dore, better known as DJ Turbo.

….and the third prong of their telecoms assault is over in the Solomon Islands, legally or not?

With or without a licence, the international mobile phone company, Digicel, is going ahead with plans to set up a network of telecommunication towers throughout Solomon Islands.

Digicel is reported to be working on a plan to set up a network of telecommunication towers and other facilities and equipment necessary to set up a national mobile network in the country once it gets its licence.

Sources both in Australia and Solomon Islands who want to remain anonymous have said that Digicel has already contracted a company in Australia to transport the different parts of the telecommunications towers and equipment throughout the country.

Digicel is also working on a plan to start negotiating with different customary landowners through the country for plots of land on which Digicel would put up the towers.

As we’ve learned from Forbes online, this ain’t the first time those wily Irish have started without approval, but can their luck last?
