Tortola Pier Park Ltd (TPPL) launched a Request for Service to have a Wi-Fi system installed in Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park.
After reviewing proposals from several telecommunications providers, Digicel rose to the top and was awarded the project contract.
Digicel’s proposal included setting up the entire system at no cost to Tortola Pier Park Ltd, and a revenue-share agreement whereby revenue collected from tourists will generate a continuous stream of revenue for TPPL.
According to a press release from Digicel today, October 26, 2021, Mara Samaniego, Chief Executive Officer, said: “At Digicel, we’re all about connecting people with the things they love most, whether it’s loved ones, entertainment or social media to share moments and keep memories alive. As tourists, you want to be able to document and share your journey with friends and family, which is why we are proud to have won the bid to provide Wi-Fi at Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park.
“Our team worked hard on the proposal, so this selection validates the work we put in, and is another step forward on our Digital Operator journey to provide our customers with simply more.”
Digicel said it will pay for, install and manage the new Wi-Fi system for Tortola Pier Park Ltd and the project is expected to be ready by February 2022.
In order to use the system, tourists log in to a portal where they can then pay to access the internet.
“Digicel Business continues to offer innovative products and services, and provide the British Virgin Islands with the latest technology to upgrade and support Tourism Sector services,” the press release concluded.
