Furthering its commitment to improving the broadband footprint in Jamaica and in celebration of Consumer Rights Day, telecommunications leader Digicel on Saturday, hosted the first in a series of Data Link-Up sessions at its iconic retail store in downtown Kingston.

The company said it is taking the Data Link-Up series to Digicel stores across Jamaica to educate customers on data and smartphones.

During the well-attended session, Digicel's data experts were seen assisting customers set up their emails, download apps as well as those customers who were trying to access social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.

Importantly, customers were able to get all their burning 4G mobile questions answered, such as how much data can they get from one megabyte versus one gigabyte, as well as which data plan gives them the amount of data they need based on their usage.


One customer, Shanice Brown, who said she was very happy with the service, also said, "I had a 4G broadband modem before but when I heard that Digicel had data experts here today, I decided to use the opportunity to upgrade it. They helped me to set up my account as well as to make it more secure by barring Wi-Fi so that only I can access it. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time so I'm happy I was able to get it done today."

Distribution Director, Patrick King, shared that "A smartphone provides a gateway to the world's information and data are the key to that gateway."

King added that customers can listen out for announcements of Digicel's local Data Link Up in the media and on Digicel's Facebook page. "Customers can also tune in to Nationwide News Network every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for our Data Doctor segment to get all the information, tips and tricks that they need about data and their smartphones", disclosed King.
