Digicel has been granted a 50 year licence to install its underground fibre optic cables in a bid to upgrade and improve network services across the Turks and Caicos Islands.
According to a post Cabinet statement, Digicel will be able to put in its cables along specified blocks of Crown land in Providenciales and Grand Turk.
The aim is to fix and improve its telecommunications infrastructure following extensive damage caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Romello Williams, Digicel's marketing executive, says work has already commenced to offer customers faster internet and cable speed.
Fibre optic cables will be connected directly to customers' homes.
Williams revealed that, for the first time, the core of Digicel's network will run underground to future-proof it against natural disasters and ensure faster recovery times.
