Digicel 4G Officially Introduced

The 4G (3G+) speculation started back in May and Friday night, exactly two months later, Digicel’s 4G was officially introduced to the public at the Brionplein in Otrobanda. There are still some unanswered questions – aren’t there always? – but the prices and packages are not under wraps anymore.

You’ll find all of the info at 4g.digicelabc.com, but the most important stuff is listed here below.
