Digicel Tonga addresses connectivity issues

Tonga has suffered an outage in the submarine cable network that connects the Kingdom to the outside world putting the country into digital isolation.

It’s been 8-days with the outage and Digicel Tonga continues to face data connectivity issues because of the major fibre cut in the submarine cable resulting in the unstable data services.   

Digicel wishes to advise all its customers that they can make International and Locals calls as well as send text messages both locally and international, however using data services will only allow you to use basic services such as browsing to stay connected with family and friends.

Digicel Tonga has established 3G data connectivity nationwide that will allow you to use the basic data services.  

In view of the current situation, Digicel Tonga is reducing it’s Out of bundle charge from $0.25 to $0.05.  

If you wish to get yourself or family members a Digicel SIM, please visit your nearest Digicel store and our team will be happy to assist you and also provide you with further updates.   

Digicel apologises for the disruptions. Please, call Digicel Customer Care on 123 or 676-8761000 for assistance or visit Digicel Tonga Facebook for updates. 

In the meantime, Digicel’s team is working tirelessly to ensure that the quality of service provided to its customers is fully restored so that they can return to enjoying Digicel’s LTE 4G+ network.
