Digicel Goes Wireless

Jamaica-based Caribbean mobile network operator Digicel, which currently provides mobile services in 23 countries and territories in the region and in Central America, has won a licence to offer WiMAX services in eight departments in Honduras.

Digicel secured the concession with a bid of HNL36 million (USD1.86 million), beating off rival offers from Celtel, Sercom, Lumelsa, Autoconsa and Axioma Empresarial.

Digicel already holds wireless broadband WiMAX licenses in Jamaica and Gran Cayman. In December last year it won a GSM licence in Honduras with a bid of USD80 million and hopes to launch commercial operations there before Christmas.
