Details The incredible success story of Digicel began five years ago in April 2001 when Digicel exploded on to the Jamaican scene with the country’s first GSM mobile service, revolutionizing the telecommunications industry there and in the rest of the Caribbean.

In our first 100 days of operation in Jamaica, we secured 100,000 phone subscribers - a goal originally established for the company's one-year mark. Never before in the history of mobile telecommunications had such tremendous growth been seen in a network, as Digicel broke record after record in surpassing its major competitor as the mobile provider with the largest customer base on the island.

Currently, Digicel's staff is in excess of 3,000; 90% of whom are Caribbean nationals. Digicel's investment in the region accounts for more than US$1.5 billion. We are in a position of strength with a unique market opportunity, leading brand, and an excellent offering that is unmatched in the region.
