Digicel Fiji says it has not let go of any of its staff although the company has encountered it's fair share of challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although there was an increase in data demands of up to 40% during the lockdown in Suva and Lautoka, CEO Farid Mohammed says not all of this translates to the financials.

Mohammed says they are not focused on what the challenges mean for them now but instead focused on how they get out of it and come out on the other side.

He says they are being innovative and are looking at giving their customers other apps.

One arm of Digicel Fiji's business that has been impacted is Sky Pacific.

Mohammed says they are seeing an impact on their business as there have been a lot of layoffs and are challenged in terms of their disposable income.
