His Excellency Hon. Lionel Rouwen Aingimea, President of The Republic of Nauru thanked Digicel for its significant contribution to the communications infrastructure in Nauru and said; “On behalf of a grateful country, Thank you very much.”

We have placed our customers first – providing them with a world class LTE 4G+ internet experience. In recent months, Digicel has invested a significant amount in the network infrastructure upgrades and in rolling out its services with customers enjoying superfast speeds and great value offers with the likes of PlayGo App and the integration of Nauru TV into its channel lineup. As a complete communications and entertainment provider, our driving aim is to help create a world where no one gets left behind – and that means sharing our success by ensuring that the benefits go back to the people who have given their support and trust to Digicel.”
