Digi will activate 4G calls in the last quarter and does not contemplate raising its rates

Date: July 19, 2024 Time: 23:58:22

Digi plans to launch its VoLTE service (voice-over long term Evolution, for its acronym in English) in the last quarter of the year, that is, 4G calls, something in which the company has invested one million euros and which involves an improvement in the quality of calls, while it does not contemplate raising its prices despite the inflationary scenario. This was stated by the CEO of Digi in Spain, Marius Varzaru, in an interview with Europa Press, in which he also indicated that the VoLTE service will be applied to all the company’s clients for free.

“We hope that by the fourth quarter of this year we will launch VoLTE services for our clients, which is one more step to complement and also improve the quality of the technological offer that we have for our clients,” stated the manager.

On the other hand, and in a context in which, according to various analysts, Digi is the best position to take over the possible ‘remedies’ that may be imposed to give the green light to the merger of Orange and MásMóvil in Spain, Varzaru has indicated that the company, if it finally takes over the assets that both Orange and MásMóvil have to get rid of, would be in a position to invest around 2,000 million euros in the next seven years.

“For us the ‘remedies’ are not a prize, we consider them as a responsibility. We are committed to making important investments if we are winners of the ‘remedies’ of the merger. If we win them, we will be able to invest 2,000 million in a plan 7 years that would generate the hiring of 1,500 employees”, he stated. Along these lines, for Varzaru the most interesting assets that could be captured are those linked to the mobile telephone spectrum, networks, equipment and antennas.

Confident in becoming the fourth operator

“We believe that in order to maintain the level of competition in the market, the important thing is that part of the mobile telephony spectrum or the networks, equipment and antennas that MásMóvil has rented could be relevant and interesting assets that will be necessary to be able to maintain the level of competition”, he underlined. In this scenario, Varzaru is confident that Digi will become the fourth largest operator in the Spanish market. However, the manager has ruled out that the company is going to carry out merger or acquisition operations to gain volume.

“We are a company that grows organically and we like this model. We are ‘business builders’ and we are focused on this model,” he stressed. On the other hand, he has also stressed that at this time there is no intention of incorporating funds or new shareholders into digi in Spain.
