KINGSTON, Jamaica:
Digicel is reporting that its network suffered multiple incidents of vandalism between 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock this morning.

Digicel’s CEO, Barry O’Brien, says both the primary and backup fibre routes were deliberately vandalised.

He says this resulted in service interruption to customers.

Digicel says its technical teams and bandwidth service providers have since repaired the damage and service has been fully restored.

Columbus Business Solutions was also affected by the same malicious incidents and both service providers are offering a combined reward of $1 million to any person who can provide information that leads to a conviction.
