This is in a direct response to TC Winston which hit the Fiji Islands late on Saturday.
Digicel Pacific’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Murphy said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with all the communities affected in Fiji and the wider Digicel family stands ready to assist where possible. We had been tracking the progress of Cyclone Winston and are now activating the communications recovery plan that was in place. This includes working with our Pacific neighbour’s, and our valued partners to provide heavily discounted calling to and from Fiji”.
For our Digicel family within Fiji, they can call sixteen overseas destinations from now until Sunday for only FJ$0.10 per minute. Participating countries include: Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, China, India, UK, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu and Nauru. For those calling from Vanuatu to Fiji will pay a special rate of only 10VT per minute until this Sunday.
Communication services are of utmost importance as families and loved ones need to stay connected with those across the islands and abroad. With that, Digicel Fiji has restored network connectivity in Suva, Navua, Serua, Korolevu, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka and Nausori.
Additionally, Digicel provided all customers in Fiji with $5 of free credit to call their family and friends all over Fiji and in core overseas territories.
“We understand the impact of natural disasters on island nations and also the importance of planning so that we can react quickly to help get recovery efforts underway. The Digicel Pacific family is standing behind Fiji and doing all it can to help assist with recovery efforts”.
