Digicel Guyana rolls out 4G service

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Digicel Guyana Kevin Kelly officially launched 4G service in Bartica on Saturday after receiving conditional licences and additional spectrum.

Kelly also revealed that Digicel has big plans in store for its consumers as the telco intends to invest up to US$40M in 4G network infrastructure.

“This is the first step we are keen on liberalization…This is just one aspect…with this 4G we are hoping that liberalization passing through the parliament at the end of May that in itself will bring in a lot of new services,” said Kelly. “We were waiting for the spectrum to be allocated and this government has done that…If liberalization happens we’d have to convert every single tower  to 4G – that would probably cost over US$30M-US$40M.”
