The Government has brokered an agreement that will allow all eTransport users to top up their Vodafone e-ticketing cards at Digicel stores nationwide.

Upon rollout on Monday, Fijians will be able to visit both Digicel or Vodafone retailers to adjust the balance of their e-ticketing cards, significantly expanding the number of top-up locations throughout Fiji. Training for Digicel staff started last week.

Attorney-General and Minister for Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, thanked Digicel for taking part in this Government-led initiative.

“To have Fiji’s two national mobile carriers, Digicel and Vodafone, come together for the good of the country is a remarkable example of corporate cooperation,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“It is testament that both companies share Government’s vision of outfitting Fiji with the necessary tools and technologies to succeed in the 21st century.

“We thank Digicel for a decision that will add convenience to the lives of every Fijian.”

Digicel Fiji chief executive Mike Greig said: “It’s great progress to see Digicel outlets also providing this essential service to the people of Fiji.

“We support the Fijian Government and applaud their foresight in introducing eTransport in Fiji. I thank the government for partnering with Digicel to make top-up easier and more accessible for customers.

“We hope our customers will also benefit giving them a one-stop experience with Digicel, Sky Pacific, Unwired services and now eTransport top-up available in our stores.”
