Digicel Jamaica will today launch a ground-breaking new offer known as Digicel Zero that will see customers getting all Digicel calls free with the purchase of a three-day data plan - making it what the telecoms firm calls "the simplest and most attractive offer ever launched in Digicel Jamaica's 14-year history".

Newly appointed CEO for Digicel Jamaica, David Butler, said: "We're in the business of keeping our customers happy - and with Digicel Zero, we are doing just that. With over one million of our customers already accessing Digicel data plans, we know how much they love to stream, surf and share on Jamaica's biggest and best 4G network".

He added: "Our customers told us they wanted cheaper calls and more data. Digicel Zero is giving them more of what they want, ensuring their credit is used only for data by making all Digicel to Digicel calls completely free."

As with other Digicel data plans, Digicel Zero also includes free Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Wikipedia and Twitter, meaning customers can use every last megabyte as part of the three-day data plan to access the websites and the content they love.

"We have invested hugely in our network, upgrading more than 180 sites to 4G over the last year - just so we can deliver on our customers' growing appetite for data. And, we're not stopping there. We're investing a great deal more in expanding our data network over the next 12 months, reinforcing our position as the champion of mobile data in Jamaica, and our commitment to making it accessible to absolutely everyone. By making Digicel calls completely free, we are putting our money where our mouth is," concluded Butler.

To mark the launch of the industry's most sensational offer to date, Digicel is giving more than 50 per cent off on handset deals. With prices reduced to only J$949 and smartphones starting at $3,949 when customers purchase $200 credit, Digicel is making it even easier for customers to join the data revolution.
