Digicel Vs Bmobile: Whose Got The Better Pre Paid Plans?
It’s about that time again where I look to review one of the most asked questions in the country and no it’s not KFC vs Royal Castle, whose better (I do prefer Royal Castle). It’s another Digicel vs Bmobile blog and today we are going to be taking a look at who offers the best packages for my prepaid users. Is it Digicel or the green machine Bmobile?
I will be taking a look at other factors like postpaid plans and service in a later blog post, but we know that T&T is a prepaid nation, and since a lot of plans have come and go, let us see who’s got the best plans for my prepaid folk out here.
What makes a good prepaid plan?
That is a question that varies from consumer to consumer but generally speaking we hear that price, features, variety of plans, and clarity of plans seem to be high on most consumers list. Today we take a look at Bmobile & Digicel’s prepaid plans to see if they hit those targets.

Who Has The Best Fair Usage Policy For Unlimited Use?
Both networks need to come out and further clarify what the fair usage policies are in more layman’s terms and specify what the thresholds are so that everyone can manage their data without being blindsided with either a charge, reduction in access or flat out suspension on the network. With streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu all the rage, it’s not impossible to rack up high data consumption. Consumers should be made aware as to what the threshold is, so they can manage their data usage accordingly.
What Would Make Pre Paid Better?
We live in a time period where everyone’s needs are changing and we need the flexibility to grow with our changing needs. What both companies need to do in my opinion is offer A La Carte services. Give us the options to build our own plans that fully suit our needs. They should create the features, give it a dollar amount, give discounts for more features you bundle together but ultimately give us the choice and freedom we need. The first company that goes this route, will ultimately see an uptick in new subscribers, toss in the fact that we have number portability now and customers will be more willing to make the switch.
FB Fan Poll: Who Has The Better Prepaid Plans?
If you are looking at grabbing the right prepaid plan, it will ultimately come down to what do you need and what works for your budget. Digicel has essentially matched Bmobile on their 4 plans offered but are better suited for consumers who need to make Long Distance calls as Bmobile’s Unlimited plans are only for local calls nor do they provide a pool of minutes for LD.
If you are a tourist in the country, the additions of the 1hr, 3 days, 5 days, and 10-day plans will be of good service to you as they are short-term and provide data & LD minutes for calls outside of T&T. Bmobile currently has the faster network with their 4G LTE service.
I would also remind people to ensure that whatever location they spend the most time at, their provider has good service in the area. You can download the Opensignal and check to see if your areas are covered by Bmobile or Digicel respectively.
