Latin American mobile operator Digicel (Honduras) has expanded its mobile coverage to five additional municipalities in Honduras, BNamericas writes citing an article in local paper El Heraldo. The five areas covered are in the departments of Atlantida, Francisco Morazan, Choluteca, Olancho and Cortes, it said. Irish-owned mobile group Digicel became the fourth wireless operator in Honduras when it launched commercially in November this year. It intends to invest USD450 million (including USD80.1 million for its licence) to deploy at least 1,200 cellsites and other related infrastructure and currently has 500 points of sale nationwide. Digicel is looking to sign up 5,000 customers by year-end and hopes to become the country’s second largest mobile operator within a year of launching.
