What is Roaming?
International Roaming is the facility to make and receive calls outside of the local Digicel network in Vanuatu. GSM is widely available across the world and accounts for 70% of the worldwide Digital cellular technology.
How does one "Roam"?
Roaming is extremely simple, once Digicel has a roaming agreement with a foreign
operator in the country that you are visiting, then your Digicel SIM can be
used to make and receive calls in the normal way on a foreign operator's network.
When you arrive in the foreign country your phone automatically tunes in to
the foreign operator's network. If there is more than one GSM network in the
foreign country you may set up your phone to either automatically choose the
network with the best signal or, you can choose a network manually via a menu
option on your phone. When someone dials your local Digicel number the call
will be routed to you on your mobile phone even though you are in a foreign
country. They do not need to know where you are, or what international code
How are "International Roaming" calls charged?
It depends on the direction of the call i.e. whether the call is incoming (i.e. someone is calling you) or outgoing (i.e. you are ringing someone). For incoming calls, when you are abroad both the calling party and yourself will share the cost of the call: The person calling you pays the same rate they always pay for calling a Digicel number locally. You, receiving the call, will pay for accepting a call on the overseas network. This rate will be set between Digicel and the overseas Operator whose network you are using and will appear on your next bill. Click here to get roaming charges. For outgoing calls, when you are abroad, if you are calling home you will be billed at a different rate than when you are calling within that particular country.
