Digicel’s L.T.E. Network has now extended out to other villages in Upolu and Savai’i. 

The announcement comes in just over a month since the leading mobile phone operator launched L.T.E. on June 30th. 

At the time of launch, coverage was focused on the Apia C.B.D area extending to parts of Vailele, Vaitele, Tanugamanono for Upolu and in parts of Salelologa for Savaii. 

Since then, Digicel has added more sites with L.T.E. coverage across the north western coast of Upolu towards the airport, enabling residents of those areas to enjoy superfast L.T.E. speeds.

“We acknowledge the support of the Samoan Government for our vision, as well as our loyal customers for their support while we extend L.T.E coverage to more areas,” said Rory Condon, Digicel C.E.O.

“I would also like to acknowledge the professionalism and performance of our technical team who have pulled out all the stops to give our customers an incredible LTE experience!”
