    We look forward to some real broadband speeds. 25Mb as the fastest offering for a country that pays the most on earth for internet is embarrassing and a rip off! Get your product together and take care of your customers. That is to all the ISP”s here. We have paid an arm, leg, and foot long enough!!

    No complaints from the Progressive Labour Party on “foreign ownership” with Bermudian fronting.:-( And yes, I’d see they’d stated, “creating more jobs.”

      The new jobs come from the influx of foreigners then the displacement of locals, see Digicel Bermuda

    Have they ever revealed how much they paid. They should be required to do so, if they haven’t done so already. It goes to show, Digicel are making a mint off Cell Phone fanatics.

    Will be interesting to see how Digicel deal with the unionized BTC workers.
    They are noted for breaking unions in most of their Caribbean markets.
