The Caribbean wireless operator Digicel Group has won a licence to offer GSM mobile services in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). The firm says it has earmarked USD15 million as an initial investment into what will be its 24th market, and it plans to deploy a network with 100% population coverage. Digicel joins the two existing cellular operators in BVI: CCT Global and Cable & Wireless (C&W) subsidiary bMobile; C&W retains a monopoly in the fixed line sector.
