Communications giant Digicel has reportedly filed for bankruptcy in a Bahamian Court. International service firm KPMG has been appointed liquidator.
The communications giant started operating almost 20 years ago. They have about 14 million customers. Their growth has been rapid. They also operate outside of Jamaica across the Caribbean, Central America and Asia Pacific and can easily be referred to as an International phone company.
Digicel has been having stiff competition from Flow a local phone company that is also across the Caribbean.
Digicel recently defaulted on a loan and was downgraded by one of the international rating agencies.
Details were sketchy at press time.
