The conclusions of this audit revealed among other things that the two operators have almost similar service quality with a slight lead for Natcom; However these tests indicates that the Natcom onluy use UMTS to 15% and must still improve the network with respect to the Digicel which uses it to 85%. Besides these tests emphasize that Digicel will have to reduce the failure rate and cuts observed on its network. Natcom has in addition a best data transmission rate that Digicel. However, the two operators, with speeds between 500 Kbps and 1.2 Mbps are below the international threshold, whose minimum is 2 Mbps.
