Bermudian mobile operator Digicel has announced that its multi-million dollar 4G rollout is 90 percent complete and ready for launch later this month, report The Royal Gazette, citing company CEO Robin Seale. All customers with LTE-enabled devices will be automatically transferred to the new service and will be able to enjoy up to ten times the data speeds of the existing system.
