Internet SIM Card in Trinidad – Digicel Prepaid

My Experience with Digicel Simcard in Trinidad

(February – May 2018) In Chaguaramas, Trinidad, I took a Maxi Taxi (Bus) to buy a SIM Card from the Digicel store at the West Moorings Shopping Mall. A SIM Card costs 44 Trinidadian Dollars (about USD 7) when you add 3GB data (for 30 days) with 200 local call minutes the cost rises to 289 Trinidadian Dollars (about USD 44) including tax. I paid it by Trinidadian Dollars as they didn’t accept US Dollars. The store person set up my phone. There was no waiting line in the store. The connection speed was good.

We stayed at Peakes Marine in Chaguaramas. As the marina Wi-Fi connection speed was good, I didn’t renew the data plan and just used my phone number for calling and texting. We stayed there three months. When we ran out of 200 minutes, we went to a grocery store and added more money to my number to call or send messages.
