Digicel does not have lte. They were not granted license as yet and I know for a fact that thwy are not willing to refarm their current frequency. All they are doing now is swapping vendor equipment

Digicel 3g service (or lack thereof), got a lot worse in the last few months. Noticed there doesn't seem to be any driving southbound from the interchange to probably around Chaguanas. Pretty sure is not my phone.

On a side note, anybody port over from Digi to bmobile? Any reviews?

Noticed the same thing over the last few months. Even in POS signal quality is poor.

Same thing here. Even calls dropping and sometimes no service pops up too. Hoping they get their act together with these 'upgrades' else i will pull my corp account.

I don't see there aLte being ain't close to what the US have TBH and coverage gonna be to high end areas of trinidad


Yup!!!

Huawei is cheap 3rd world technology and to top it off the coverage of digicel is sh!t in this country for example in my house I can completely lose all Digicel signal where as I have full Bmobile strength. Mind you this is walking distance from the old airport eh so is not like is behind god back or something
Same here I live vistabella and soon as I reach home is no data and some times voice calls drop like wow

I'm seriously contemplating porting too. Where I work, if I have some free time in my office, I can't manage my business or even do some schoolwork because Digicels service sucks, whereas, my colleague who is on bmobile, can share data with me via his hotspot and I can't even get enough service to make or receive a good phone call. :roll:

Honestly haven’t done any speed test so far but working good. Got really stable loading speeds where I living. With Digicel I would get 2g so I contented already

Bro run way for a 15 mins. I just sign off on a form and the contract for postpaid send a text. Then 2 day after they’ll message you to switch ur sim to the one they provided.

Tbh porting shouldn’t take 2 days should be less than a day but Is TRINIDAD and we never get sheit working efficiently until somebody beyotch about.

The only reason I don’t switch to Bmobile is I find 392 a month is hard to pay compare to 240 I’ll stick with poor mobile internet for a week again if it doesn’t get better I’ll have to make the switch I guess

Porting to Digicel took me two days...worst decision ever...there is no point in paying for data when 2G is all that I get and it is pointless trying to use it...and i still get messages from bmoible occasionally...

timemastee, do you know if the bmobile registered dealers would do the port since most of their offices have been closed?

Actually, I found out today that there is a plan with 3GB of data, 300 minutes to local networks and landlines and free bmobile to bmobile calls for $215 VAT exclusive which comes up to about $242. All you need to do is dial *123# on the bmobile phone.
