DIGICEL'S investment in 4G+ underscores our commitment to Fiji and to making reliable, efficient and super-fast broadband accessible to Fijians across the islands.

Digicel founder and chairman Denis O'Brien, who was in Fiji this week as part of a tour of Digicel's Pacific markets, made the comment in a statement on Tuesday, informing the public that their extensive 4G+ network upgrade will be completed soon.

"And we are very much looking forward to doing just that in the coming weeks," he said.

Mr O'Brien said they were fully on track to deliver their 4G+ network upgrade to their customers across Fiji.

According to the statement customers in the Lami-Suva-Nausori corridor were already getting a superior network experience, with super-fast speeds and reliability, with customers in Nadi, Lautoka (including the Mamanuca Group), Labasa, Kadavu and Ovalau set to come online soon.

Digicel Fiji chief execeutive officer Mike Greig agreed with Mr O'Brien's sentiments when he said: "In December, we launched 'Big Phat' data plans in Fiji, which offers customers a whopping 7GB of data for $7 for seven days.

"Within a few short weeks, this offer will be the only game in town for data lovers as they move over to our super-fast 4G+ network, we can't wait!"
