Iliad, Digicel create a JV in the Antilles-Guyane region

2 Jun 2020

The Iliad Group has announced the creation of an infrastructure joint venture (JV) with Digicel Group in the ‘Antilles-Guyane’ region, which comprises Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana, Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy. The new company will own the mobile networks (active infrastructure and equipment) in the region on behalf of the two groups, though the operators will keep their core networks and their frequency usage authorisations, thus retaining ‘total commercial autonomy’. Iliad Group and Digicel Group are planning to invest jointly in the new company to significantly increase the number of mobile sites and improve coverage and throughput, with plans to ‘eventually have one of the largest telecommunications infrastructure networks in the Antilles.’
