Digicel for the Country!

Dear Editor,

I want to salute the government for accepting Digicel into the country. Telecom has so far ripping the people, and even blocking them from communication advancement. We cannot deny that communication is very important in everyday life. One instance is it saves time and money, as people will just talk on a phone, rather than travel to relay the message.

Paying a sim card is almost 10 times more than a single sim card in Fiji. So what the government is doing is best for the people, very responsible of the government.
I could say that the most expensive living standard I ever came across is living in Solomon Islands. All the basic human needs are now a huge sum of money, like food, transport, and then communication. Therefore its time the government serves the people, rather than their own interest.
