Watch: Meet the new CEO at the helm of Digicel Trinidad and Tobago

Digicel, total communications and entertainment provider, has announced the appointment of Jabbor Kayumov, as the new CEO for the Trinidad and Tobago market.

Kayumov brings with him more than 13 years of senior management experience in the telecommunications industry, including as CEO of several top telecoms organisations such as Telia (previously TeliaSonera) and Vimpelcom – now VEON.  His expertise and knowledge of the industry, along with his successful track record are expected to contribute to Digicel’s ongoing development and progress.

 

The Russian national, commenting on his appointment stated, “I’m excited to join Digicel. My new role gives me an opportunity to work with a team that is focused on quality service to our customers, and with my desire to take this organisation even further, I’m sure together we’ll be able to create a legacy that will stand the challenges that come with a dynamic industry that rapidly and continuously re-invents itself through the latest technology.”

Digicel Trinidad and Tobago, is already transforming itself to meet the demands of its customers and offer them an amazing network experience, with the most recent major step being the launch of LTE. The new network under Kayumov’s watch, is more than twice the size of the competitor’s, and 10 times faster than 4G. In just over a week of launch, there are over 100,000, and counting, active users on the LTE network.

With a recent investment of TT $250 million in the latest LTE technology, and a super fast Fibre broadband and TV Home Entertainment service that eclipsed the market about two years ago, the new CEO will lead a team that is determined to put customers in control of their communications and entertainment needs, with the products and plans that cater to every lifestyle. 

Digicel LTE's service is now live in the North-West, East and Central Trinidad as well as Eastern Tobago. The telecom says by year's end, LTE will be rolled out in South Trinidad and Western Tobago.
