Digicel Jamaica has commissioned its new 4G mobile service and is marketing the service to subscribers as the 'Surf, Stream and Share' plan.

The cellphone company said it spent US$30 million (J$2.6 billion) on the 4G mobile network, which it says covers 80 per cent of the population, and is based on HSPA+ technology.

Packaged plans for the new service are priced from J$1,500 to J$5,000 monthly for postpaid, and J$100 to J$2,750 for prepaid, varying over periods of one day to one month.

The marketing campaign kicks off with a 50 per cent discount on 4G-enabled handsets up to July 31, the company said, as well as two months of free data.

Digicel has operated in Jamaica for 11 years and has invested more than US$1 billion in its operation.

The company already offers 4G broadband services.
