DIGICEL has promised bigger opportunities as it continues to prioritise customers it has served for 10 years in Fiji.

In celebrating its 10th birthday at Subrail Park in Labasa last Friday, the company’s chief executive officer, Mike Greig, said customers had been a major part of the company’s growth over the past years.

Despite the rainy weather, customers turned up in numbers to celebrate with company officials and local singers such as Laisa Vulakoro and Saimoni Vuatalevu.

Digicel recently connected its network to the Savusavu cable which links to the Tui Samoa undersea cable.

“I thank you all for coming to celebrate with us despite the rain and we will continue to give the best services,” Mr Greig said.

“The Savusavu cable connects to the Tui Samoa undersea cable, providing a high-capacity and high-availability fiber optic link between Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island and Vanua Levu.

“The new system is more resilient and now reduces the risk of outages during cyclones, floods and bad weather.”

Customers in the North now have far greater internet experience and are on par with what customers enjoy on Viti Levu, he said.

Mr Greig said the new connection provided an advanced broadband highway in order to drive social and economic growth in the North.

“This will also boost the local economy, creating more jobs and further opportunities in the ICT sector.”
