Digicel TT CEO Sacha Thompson discussed the new service during a recent interview at Digicel's corporate office at Maraval Road, Port-of-Spain.

She reported that with Digicel Play the company will be providing "the most advanced online, television and digital service. Thompson said Digicel is expanding into this new area for the same reason it came to this country 10 years ago - to bring needed competition for the benefit of the customer. She recalled that before the entry of Digicel mobile phones were restricted to a limited number of users, but now there is 150 per cent penetration.
Thompson said the new service will be transformational for the market and contribute to the economic development of the country through bridging of the "digital divide".
Also present during the interview was Digicel Play CEO Garvin Medera. He explained that Digicel Play features a 100 percent fibre network which goes all the way to the customer's premises. He noted that they have a "backbone" and then an access network which actually connects the customer which differs from the hybrid fibre network most customers are accustomed to.
Medera said the network will support the high bandwidth requirements that people will have and will also "future proof" Digicel, enabling them to grow as technology grows without a need to upgrade the network. He added that fibre provides stability and consistency of service that is "unparalleled".
"It now means that you as the customer will absolutely get what you paid for," he said.
He noted that whatever service you sign up for, 100 megabits per second (mbps) for example, you will get it consistently throughout the day. He said the high bandwidth also provides for high quality, crystal clear phone connection and high quality TV viewing. He noted that customers would be offered high definition channels and the bandwidth to the other channels will be much higher than accustomed.

Noting that since its launch in Trinidad and Tobago ten years ago Digicel has invested some $7 billion into the country, Thompson noted that the investment into the new product and service of fibre to the home (FTTH) is $2 billion.
"So we continue to really invest in the country with that exact goal of bridging that digital divide," she said.

Digicel chief executive Sacha Thompson

DIGICEL Trinidad and Tobago's chief executive officer Sacha Thompson had a huge task when she assumed leadership of the company in March last year - to roll out a product that was completely new to the mobile network and to do so within a matter of months despite experts saying it could not be done. Digicel Play - Digicel's cable TV, broadband and home phone arm - was launched earlier this month. "What we wanted when we launched Digicel ten years ago is the same reason for television and broadband today and that is we wanted to bring competition where competition is needed for the benefit of the consumers," she said during an interview at Digicel's Maraval Road, Port of Spain office last week. "There was that opportunity glaring at us in the market in the TV and broadband space. We wanted to bring the people of Trinidad and Tobago at the cutting edge of technology," she said, adding that the key objective of the entire initiative was to bridge the digital divide in Trinidad and Tobago.
