Digicel says aims to expand in wake of BlackBerry success in Panama

Friday, June 25, 2010

Digicel, the mobile telephone service provider, continues to look to expand beyond its existing 32 markets located across the Caribbean, Central America and the Pacific, said chief executive officer Colm Delves.

Digicel now has a presence in El Salvador, Honduras and Panama and is doing well in those markets. Delves says Honduras has proved particularly challenging largely because of the economic situation and the military coup last year.

"Panama is going great and we have 600,000 customers there. We have become profitable there ahead of schedule. BlackBerry has been a huge success there for us,” Delves says.
