Digicel To Launch Fibre Internet & TV Service

August 15, 2017

Digicel said they will be completing the rollout of the country’s first Fibre-to-the-Home [FTTH] network this year, and will “use the technology to deploy the most advanced Fibre TV and Internet service.”

“Our technology will be a game-changer as it will finally deliver the much-awaited true fibre experience that customers want,” declared Julian Burton, Chief Commercial Officer of Digicel Bermuda & BTC.

He explained, “This means vast bandwidth for superfast download and upload speeds with zero buffering; so you can live stream your favourite concert in one room, while online gaming and video calling take place in other parts of the house – seamlessly.”

The company said, “The new TV service will feature a rich array of exciting features as standard. Customers will finally be able to watch more of the shows they love in High-Definition, while they pause and rewind live TV at the touch of a button on a handy remote.

“Plus, the Personal Video Recording service means binge-watchers can stash their favourite shows and spend all day viewing at their comfort. Those who want more variety will be able to choose from virtual stacks of Video on Demand content with the latest blockbusters and all-time classics.

“Sports fans can also catch all the best action including live EPL, FA Cup, Champions League, NBA, NFL, CPL and other exciting games in HD on SportsMax and other channels. Plus, there’ll be Catch 1 and Catch 2 channels – jam-packed with the most-watched content for customers to enjoy.

“Besides a powerful, new experience, we’re making sure that customers get better value than what is currently being offered, so look out for our amazing, value-packed Fibre TV and Internet deals. Consider it the new standard in quality, service and price,” Buton said.

  2. Stinky D. says:

    I think selling TV is a bad idea I would have stuck with internet only

    • James Rego says:

      Haven’t watched tv over the air or cable for close to a decade. Everything we watch is through the internet. I get to watch what I want, when I want, choices are endless.

  3. Hmmm says:

    Will customers be able to purchase one without the other, that’s the real question.

  4. King Jammys says:

    Digicel Jamaica offers a package for USD$ 122:
    Unlimited home phone,
    228 channels – 70 are HD,
    Internet 100 MBPS !

    And we call them a developing country? PAH!

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Inna! That would be like $400 here lmfao…Bermuda’s a joke regarding tv/internet/phone service

      • Lualaba says:

        Jamaica’s cost of living is less than half of ours, so it stands to reason that these costs will be as well.

    • No way Jose says:

      Jamaica has always been Digicels fav. I remember being at a conference in Texas three years ago with a friend from Jamaica who offered her phone to me to make a call. I respectfully declined because I didn’t want her to get burned with the same roaming bill that I did a few months ago while in the US. She then told me that for about $12 US per month she was able to get unlimited roaming (phone and data) when in the US.

      When I got home I asked, why is the same not offered to us in Bermuda? I couldn’t get an answer. I believe the truth to be that Digicel (like others) will charge what they believe the market in Bermuda will tolerate. The perception, and truth is that we make more and accept high prices – just because! What infuriated me was that Digicel offered no such package here in Bermuda – not even for more money. Basically , you roam – YOU PAY!

  5. Say Whaat? says:

    So by December? One should be ready before then. This must be cause they wanted to beat One to the announcements. Let me know when the service is available, not that you are planning it.

    • Brain drain says:

      Have you tried getting One’s fibre wire? Every time I call their own staff seem clueless about a product that’s being heavily advertised. I don’t get why they are advertising when it’s only available for a limited number of people and One is not putting any info out on when areas will be completed….with both of them it’s more of the same “don’t call us, we’ll call you” ….. great customer service!!

      • Mike says:

        I’m sick and tired of calling them and VERY sick and tired of hearing “they don’t tell us anything” when you ask questions.

        A complete joke.

      • Jenn says:

        Check One’s website under Internet there’s a map that shows where fibre is active along with areas in progress.

      • Jo says:

        Go on their website. They have a map of what areas are completed and what areas are currently being worked on.

  6. watcher says:

    watch one’s prices mysteriously drop is digicel undercut them. Been ripping us of for sub standard service for years.

    • Anbu says:

      And digicel doesnt rip u off? They all rip us off cause they know we want it. Nothing will change. People will just switch from one crappy service provider to the next. U can polish a turd but its still a turd

  7. Dale E. Bread says:

    Vorizon $80
    T mobile $70
    Sprint $60

    Per month unlimited data…

    We need these prices pleas…

    • Really says:

      USA population 323m
      BDA population 65k

      Hmm, why is a service with some fixed costs the same more expensive per person?

      Why don’t we have such big stores?

      Why don’t Amazon offer a same day delivery service here?
