Challenges of life after sports

Captain of the PNG Hunters Ase Boas says that this is a sad reality that many face.

Boas and his team mates took part in a recent financial literacy training given by Digicel PNG.

The training focused on being money smart and ways to enable simple saving measures.

Facilitated by the Digicel Learning center, the one day training which was broken up into two separate sessions for the team helped the team to be more money minded in their approach to saving and spending.

Introducing Digicel’s new self-care voice service

The sophisticated, user-friendly self-care voice platform is expected to significantly improve the way and speed at which customers get their queries resolved and get information on the different products, services and offers available to them.

By dialing 123 from their mobile phones, customers can simply follow the prompts to get their queries addressed and get information they need just like that - without having to join lines in a store or wait for the next available agent on the line. Best of all, the service is free to all Digicel customers.

Today, Digicel once more announced its continued gold sponsorship support of the park.
