Here is a simpler analysis of post paid plans between TSTT/bmobile and Digicel instead of the confusing, long “independent” reports on bmobile’s site.
Update (August 2006) : Digicel’s postpaid packages now includes calls to bmobile
Current post-paid plans (as of May 2006)
- Digicel’s postpaid packages comes with pre bundled minutes which can be used to call Digicel, fixed lines ONLY. A call to bmobile costs $1.22/$1.40 (no VAT/with VAT). Checking voicemail does NOT use your pre-bundled minutes.
- bmobile’s postpaid packages comes with pre bundled minutes which can be used to call Digicel, fixed and bmobile lines. Checking voicemail DOES use your pre-bundled minutes.
|Cost/mth||Bundled Mins||Rate/min||Bundled SMS|
|no VAT||with VAT||no VAT||with VAT|
|Digicel Postpaid 120||$82.61||$95||120||0.69||0.79||50|
|Digicel Postpaid 240||$160.87||$185||240||0.67||0.77||75|
|Digicel Postpaid 360||$221.74||$255||360||0.62||0.71||100|
Observations as of May 2006
- Digicel is cheaper if you’re only calling other Digicel phones and fixed lines.
- Digicel is not cheaper if you call many bmobile customers. If your call pattern is to call a bmobile customer for long periods of time (e.g your friend, family member, relative or significant other), it would be cheaper to get a Digicel cell for that bmobile user.
