Digicel Fiji is the first company to pass onto consumers the benefits of the removal of data levy initiated by the government.
This follows the launch of Fiji’s first ever Dream Data Deal which provides 40GB data which includes free Digicel calls and texts monthly for only $10.
Chief Executive Farid Mohammed says the launch is timely given the currently economic situation due to the pandemic.
“COVID has had a significant impact for the lives of our people here, not just in Fiji but globally. That is why Digicel is going back to the ALL IN theme, we are all in for Fiji, we are all in for supporting our communities, we are all in for supporting our people. We want to ensure that one of the essential services which is communication, they are able to access at an affordable and reasonable price.”
Mohammed says the deal was derived from the latest trend in the market showing that about 60 percent of their customers consume less than 20GB data per month.
Telecommunication Company Digicel is also working on investing $30m on upgrading their network and the phase two is expected to be completed in September.
