According to local press reports the government of Dominica has officially selected Digicel as the winning bidder to provide ‘the rebuild of the telecommunications and ICT services to the country’, in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria last September. Following a competitive bid process, telecom services provider Digicel Dominica was selected as the strategic provider of communications services for a 15-year term. The contract award has been approved by the Cabinet after accepting the recommendation of the Bid Evaluation Committee. Going forward, Digicel has pledged to work with the national government to deliver a highly resilient, state of the art network infrastructure, at a standard ‘never seen before in the region’. Under the programme, Digicel will undertake the rebuilding and provisioning of telecoms, internet, data, cloud and other ICT services to all government sites, including every official office, school, community centre and health centre, across the length and breadth of the island.
