Digicel announced Thursday an agreement with ZTE Corporation , a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, to expand its 4G LTE networks across its 26 markets in the Caribbean and Central America.
Deploying ZTE’s world-class 4G LTE solutions will see Digicel delivering the highest-performance mobile broadband services to all its customers across the region.
