Firm aims to increase data penetration

Digicel PNG is on the path now to increase data penetration throughout the country through the use of its recently launched service, free Facebook.

Acknowledging Facebook as the largest social media platform globally with 1.6 billion customers, Digicel PNG partnered with Facebook to provide free browsing to its PNG customers.

Digicel managing director mobile, Shivan Bhargava, said Facebook may possibly be a starting point to get more Papua New Guineans onto social media.

Free Facebook takes off quickly

Digicel head of products, Paul Byrne, said the company has seen positive response following the soft launch in July 22.

Not stating specific numbers, he says Digicel has seen a massive uplift from a numbers perspective.

He also noted that this remarkable result has been achieved prior to any advertising campaigns being rolled out.

“We just started our advertisement campaign on Monday so we’re expecting really big uptake and increase in people using Facebook on our network.”
