Digicel Play has announced that its service has passed the 20,000 subscriber mark in Jamaica, less than 60 days after reaching 10,000 customers.

To celebrate the occasion, the company traced its 20,000th customer, Rosalin Marshall, to Portmore and gave her a mind-blowing surprise.

Corporal Rosalin Marshall, a police officer for 17 years, thought she and her husband, Roger, were being taken to a secret location to participate in a focus group session. However, her eyes popped wide open when she saw Digicel Ambassador and the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, waiting to present her with a brand new 55-inch LG TV, three months of free service and goodie bags, courtesy of Digicel Play.

"Did you see my eyes popping out of my head when I saw Usain? I'm upfront and personal with him, wow," said an overly excited Rosalin. "My pastor told me a few weeks ago that God is going to give me a mind-blowing experience. My mind is blown today. This is really a surprise."

John Suranyi, Group CEO for Digicel Play, Caribbean and Central America, was also happy with the success of Digicel Play thus far.

"This is a clear indicator that customers want a better home entertainment experience, and that is exactly what we are delivering to Jamaican homes, using the fastest fibre in the region to give customers access to world-class content at the touch of a button," he said.
