Digicel unveiled its latest promotion, ‘Kiss Your Internet Bill Goodbye, on Thursday morning. The offer may not be for everyone, people who don’t like contracts or people who would actually pay more than they currently do by the offer.

As an example, someone who only has a $50 a month phone plan and a $60 a month Internet plan for Digicel for 8Mb, would still pay the same amount for the first year of the contract ($100 for the phone and $10 for home Internet) but would then pay $160 for the second year when the Home Internet reverted back to its normal price. 

Below are some frequently asked questions with regard to the promotion. 



Q. How does the ‘Digicel free Internet’ promotion work?

A. Any new customer who signs up for a Digicel postpaid voice and/or data plan valued at $100 or more per month may choose to receive 12 months of free Digicel Internet (6 Mb) for their home. The customer must sign a two-year voice and/or data agreement as well as a two-year Internet agreement. A termination fee of $250 will apply to any customer terminating the Internet contract prior to its 24 month duration.

The Promotion ends on Saturday, March 1, 2014. 

Q. If I am an existing Digicel Postpaid customer do I qualify for this promotion?

A. If you are a Digicel postpaid customer currently out of contract, you may choose to receive 12 months free Digicel Internet (6 Mb) for your home by ensuring that your mobile plan is valued at $100 or more per month, extending your mobile agreement by 2 years, and signing a 2 year Digicel Internet agreement. 

If you have six months or less remaining on your current agreement, you may choose to receive 12 months free Digicel Internet (6 Mb) for your home by ensuring that your mobile plan is valued at $100 or more per month, extending your mobile agreement by two years, and signing a two-year Digicel Internet agreement. 

If you have more than six months remaining on your agreement, you may choose to open a new Digicel postpaid account to qualify for this promotion.  

Customers who deactivate their existing accounts during the promotion period will not be eligible for this promotion.   

Q. Suppose I open a new Digicel postpaid account to get 12 months free Digicel Internet, but also need a new device?
