Digicel has announced that it has acquired the wireless arm of Bonaire telecom provider TELBO. Under the terms of the deal, Digicel will acquire TELBO’s mobile subscriber base, spectrum and base stations. Digicel entered the Bonaire market under its own steam in July 2006, making it the first mobile operator ever to connect Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao (the ABC islands) under one seamless GSM network. Full integration plans are now underway to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for TELBO customers to the Digicel family.
TELBO has operated in Bonaire for the past 23 years, providing a variety of services including fixed line, international traffic, leased lines, public telephones, ISDN, dial-up, wireless broadband and ASDL.
