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.
