Digicel Dominica extends FTTH footprint to northern localities

Monday 21 September 2020 | 14:51 CET | News
Dominican operator Digicel has announced a further expansion of its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network on the island to mark the 3-year anniversary of the passing of Hurricane Maria, reports Dominica News Online, citing the company's CEO Nikima Royer Jno Baptiste. The company has spent the intervening period connecting communities left without internet access and has just activated its FTTH service in 355 premises in the northern locality of Bense, to be followed next month by a further 100 homes in Morne-A-Luis and in November by another 478 homes in Penville.
