With Digicel Data you can browse both WEB and WAP sites. In simple terms this means:
WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) Browsing
Browsing via WAP allows access to “web like” sites that were specially designed to be viewed on micro browsers e.g. those found on mobile phones. These pages are usually associated with the name WAP somewhere in the address.
This access allows users to view internet websites on the World Wide Web e.g http://www.digicelvanuatu.com . You can browse from your mobile phone or from your computer using a data modem.
