On Monday November 5th, during lunch kit horrors (daily school prep with Superhero) my phone started ringing, I started to rush for it mumbling “who could be calling me during lunch kit horrors, this better be an emergency”. When I looked at the caller-id it was someone who only calls when they’re having issues with their tablet…after hesitating for a bit I answered.
ME: Good morning.
CALLER: I just picked up a newspaper and you’re in it.
ME: WHAT? ME? What are you talking about?
CALLER: You are in the Digicel ad in the Observer paper.
ME: Oh yeahhhh! He used IT! (remembering Troy asked me for a photo on Friday)…my first thought was did he get it airbrushed like I requested?!?!…Taking photos is very painful for me…I always manage to screw it up…my best photos are the ones snapped when I’m not looking.
After a few more pleasantries the called ended and my Superhero who overheard the convo started bugging me to check my e-mail to see if the daily newspaper was delivered. I didn’t need anything getting in the way of lunch kit horrors so I snapped at him to finish getting dressed for school (felt really bad after). I tried not to think about the photo but checked my phone to look at what I sent Troy…thinking to myself …it’s not bad…BUT!
On the way to school I pulled up the newspaper using my new 4G phone (oh I’m no longer giving it to Superhero, I’ve given him the Blackberry and switched my data-plan) but didn’t see the ad so I assumed it must be an insert in the paper…made a mental note to buy a paper when I got into town…of course I forgot until I got the following message via Facebook:
I was super excited now to see a paper…”WOW…I’m famous LOL, let’s not forget cute pic too…heehee.
So I went in search of a paper and ran into Troy who said he’ll get me one…which he did…thanks Troy ;-). Nervously I opened the paper and there on the first page is my photo…”OMG the front page…seriously…WHY?!?!” I inspected the picture for faults, checking to see if spinach or something was in my teeth, was my smile too big, it my collar straight…(I’m my worse critic)…hmmm…you can’t do anything about it now…it is there in full colour and print for everyone to see…oh well…oh look there Trip Antigua got a mention…whoo hoo (if you haven’t yet like us —>> www.facebook.com/TripAntigua)
Now enough about me being famous…let’s talk about the extraordinary-ness (<—not a word) of Digicel’s 4G LTE Home Internet. Between my Superhero and myself we have tested the service up the wazoo and back, with my Superhero using it for gaming, Youtube and Netflix with no cries of despair. With multiple devices connected at once, laptop, desktop, phone, Kindle, tablet and PSP. We also tested the tethering/hotspot option on the Alcatel phone and in under 25 minutes uploaded 97 photos to Facebook.
I must say I’m very impressed and happy with the speed, signal strength…almost forgot I was taking pics and tweeting at Pillars of Hercules with my the little Alcatel phone with excellent signal strength…now that is extraordinary-ness.
Look there’s no need to think twice about it just upgrade your mobile to 4G and make the switch to 4G Lte Internet…I’m loving my new and extraordinary relationship with Digicel 😉
