Jamaica-based Digicel Group’s Fijian mobile unit has published the latest update on its ongoing LTE-A deployment, adding the areas of Lautoka and Ba to its ‘Superfast 4G+’ footprint as it continues to push ultra-high speed mobile internet services in key population areas across the country. The rollout, part of the cellco’s USD50 million investment programme, builds on last month’s announcement that Digicel had switched on its LTE-A signal in Nadi and some parts of Denarau Island. Digicel Fiji has also deployed LTE-A in the greater Suva area, Lami and Nausori.
Specifically, the latest network enhancement is available to Digicel customers in Lautoka between Lomolomo and Matawalu, including the city centre, Lauwaki, Malawiya, Navutu, Namoli, Kashmir, Saru, Waiyavi, Rifle Range, Vuda and Vitogo. Meanwhile in Ba, Digicel Superfast 4G+ stretches from Varavu to Tavarau including the town area, Nawelowelo, Nailaga, Vasavaruru, Clopcott and Vatulaulau. The mobile operator’s CEO Mike Greig says further enhancements to its network will be announced in the future.
