Digicel Trinidad and Tobago will be giving students who sat the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) exam free mobile service and data for one month.

The company said in a statement Monday that all 19,344 students who wrote the SEA exam will be able to receive the offer, followed by a 25 per cent discount on mobile plans until the end of 2020.

Colin Greaves, Head of Public Relations, Digicel, said it's hoped the offer will help students get off to a good start:

'Digicel continues to be there with the people of Trinidad and Tobago, providing great service and special offers to meet their ever-changing needs. These SEA students are now making that critical transition from primary into secondary school and we understand the importance of being ‘present’ at the start of the term. By giving free service for their first month at their new school, we hope that we are helping them off to a good start.'

The company said the special free SEA Plan gives 30 days of unlimited calls to local Digicel mobile and Digicel landline numbers, 75 anywhere minutes, six gigabytes of LTE data to access the internet, free premium D’Music access to over 40 million songs, and free BiP messaging so that students can video call, voice call and message using BiP for free.

The plan also provides a free SIM.

At the end of the 30 days, Digicel says students can benefit from a 25 per cent discount on the plan’s renewal, as well as an additional 25 per cent off the already discounted Freedom $199 and Freedom $299 Plans for the rest of the year.

To redeem the offer, parents simply have to visit any Digicel Experience Store or retail outlet and present their children’s SEA slip.

Greaves said: 'This initiative complements our many other education-based support activities such as the zero-rating of most educational websites linked to the Ministry of Education, UWI, UTT and the Tobago House of Assembly, so that students on Digicel have free access to the content without having to worry about data charges.'
