Digicel launches new network

3 May 2006

To celebrate today’s launch of its new wireless network on the Caribbean island of Haiti, Digicel will be giving away free phones for those customers willing to switch from existing providers Comcel, Haitel and the amusingly titled Rectel. Digicel won Haiti’s first GSM licence in June 2005; its rivals operate on TDMA and CDMA-based networks.
