Digicel to buy Telstar Cable


Digicel has inked a deal to buy Telstar Cable Limited’s cable and fibre network in Jamaica.

Upon approval from the Broadcasting Commission, the telecommunications giant plans to expand network coverage for cable TV, broadband and telephony services and increase offering of products, services and content available to cable customers in Jamaica.

Telstar’s Flo Darby said the that the 20-year-old subscriber television service provider had long wanted to expand but lacked the capital.

“Over time we added a few zones but we needed to expand further however we did not have the capital resources to undertake the expansion and so we had wanted a good corporate company to invest in what we wanted to achieve; an entity that would allow us to soar and to provide services to our customers in areas that we have not be able to,” she said.

The company currently operates in Kingston and St Andrew, as well as, parts of St Catherine, including Portmore and Caymanas.
