Digicel completes ABC island coverage

18 Jul 2006

Caribbean wireless operator Digicel has announced the launch of its GSM network on the Netherlands Antilles island of Bonaire. The cellco claims the new network is a milestone for the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao (the so-called ‘ABC Islands’), which are now connected by a seamless GSM network for the first time. Digicel acquired a presence on Bonaire in April 2006 when it bought a majority shareholding in Antilliano Por. The purchase complements its existing operations in Aruba, launched in 2002, and in Curacao, where it bought Curacao Telecom in March 2005.
