Digicel quickly became Haiti’s largest mobile provider with an initial investment of USD260 million – the largest ever single private foreign investment in the country. Its launch lowered the cost of mobile services, and drove cellular penetration up from under 7% to over 35% today, and it claims to have a current market share of over 60%. Digicel Group is headquartered in Jamaica and incorporated in Bermuda, and has operations in 31 markets worldwide. Its Caribbean and Central American markets comprise Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, Bonaire, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, El Salvador, French Guiana, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Panama, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago and Turks & Caicos. The company also has coverage in St. Martin and St. Barths.
