DIGICEL CELEBRATES 10 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS LANDMARK ACROSS ITS 32 MARKETS WORLDWIDE
Digicel has reached the milestone of ten million subscribers across 32 markets worldwide, and staff are celebrating.
Since launching in Jamaica in 2001, Digicel has expanded rapidly across the Caribbean, Central America and the Pacific by making mobile telecoms accessible from Antigua to Fiji and by constantly improving its network, to deliver on their promise of best service and best value to their most treasured asset – customers.
At the end of June 2009, Digicel recorded 7.2 million subscribers across its 24 markets in the Caribbean and El Salvador. In terms of the recently launched businesses in Honduras and Panama, these are well ahead of expectations with 1.4 million subscribers across the two markets ? while the six markets in the Pacific account for a further 1.4 million subscribers. The total of ten million subscribers equates to a compound annual growth rate of 40% over the last two years.
Colm Delves, CEO of Digicel Group, comments; ?We are delighted with our progress. Since our launch in Jamaica in 2001, we have grown to now span 32 markets worldwide and to serve over ten million customers. We?ve done this by ensuring that our commitment to provide the best network, best service and best value is evident in everything we do ? and the way in which we do it. Delighting our customers is, and always will be, our number one priority and we would like to thank them for their ongoing loyalty to Digicel.?
