TCI Govt meets with Digicel and Carnival Cruise Lines Digicel T&T Donates Supplies to Anguilla and British Virgin Islands Related Items:ad control technology, digicel, jaimca Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppWednesday, 30th September 2015 — Kingston, Jamaica. Digicel, a leading provider of communications and entertainment services to customers in the Caribbean and South Pacific, announced today that it is deploying ad control technology at the network level on its networks across the globe to ensure a better experience for customers and to encourage the likes of Google, Facebook and Yahoo to help connect the 4.2 billion unconnected people across the globe. Ad control technology benefits both consumers and network operators alike. With ads using up as much as 10% of a customers’ data plan allowance, this move will allow customers to browse the mobile web and apps without interruption from unwanted advertising messages.Starting in Jamaica and rolling out to its other markets in the Caribbean and South Pacific in the coming months, Digicel will work with Israeli start-up, Shine Technologies, to be the first operator worldwide to deploy Shine’s mobile ad control technology at the network level. Shine’s technology blocks display and video ads inserted by ad networks in both mobile browsers and apps.For network operators meanwhile, for whom bandwidth is one of the most costly considerations, Digicel is looking to companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook to enter into revenue sharing agreements with it so that this money in turn can be reinvested in network deployment and ultimately the bridging of the digital divide. Currently, these companies do not pay to make use of the network and the services they provide on it suck up bandwidth to make money for themselves through advertising while putting no money in.Broadband has proven to be transformative in both developed and developing countries alike promising to improve people’s lives and livelihoods and accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. In line with this, network operators across the world are investing billions in deploying state-of-the-art networks. Latest figures from the ITU state that 43% of the global population now has some form of regular access to the internet, but there are still some 4.2 billion people who do not. And in the least developed countries, this number drops to a very low one in ten people who have access.Denis O’Brien, Chairman of Digicel Group, explains; “This is about giving customers the best experience and about getting access to broadband to the unconnected and allowing them to benefit from the opportunities it affords. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook talk a great game and take a lot of credit when it comes to pushing the idea of broadband for all – but they put no money in. Instead they unashamedly trade off the efforts and investments of network operators like Digicel to make money for themselves. That’s unacceptable, and we as a network operator, are taking a stand against them to force them to put their hands in their pockets and play a real role in improving the opportunities for economic empowerment for the global population.”Ron Porat, CEO at Shine, explains; “Shine is dedicated to putting a stop to the abusive behavior of mobile advertising toward the network operator and the consumer. As the first operator worldwide to deploy our technology at the network level, Digicel is making a clear call for an improved customer experience. We believe it is now time for everyone in the digital advertising ecosystem to look to the future and start having a conversation about how better and sustainable digital advertising can be created to foster stronger, mutually beneficial relationships that are based on transparency and trust.” Recommended for you Thousands without power in TCI

ADVERTISING SALES OR REGIONAL MANAGERSALES PERSON, ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE, OR MANAGER METHODOLOGYThe survey sample of 771 was selected by Red 7 Media and Readex Research and represented all FOLIO: subscribers classified as sales management at the time of sample selection. Data was collected via mail survey from February 25 to April 9, 2008. The survey was closed for tabulation with 315 responses (a 41 percent response rate). To ensure representation of the audience of interest, results have been filtered to include only the 249 respondents who completed the compensation information, work full time, and indicated their job functions are best described as advertising sales director; advertising sales or regional manager; advertising salesperson, account executive, or category manager. The margin of error for percentages based on all 249 respondents is 4.8 at the 95 percent confidence level. Advertising sales is a hot field to be in right now. According to FOLIO:’s Industry Job Trends report from March, it’s one of the most in-demand areas of magazine publishing—so much so that Discover Media’s CEO Henry Donahue said demand was outstripping supply, driving salaries up. Executives from Aspire Media, National Geographic and CurtCo all noted plans to staff up on sales people to help drive revenue during economic downturn.But the sales directors, managers and reps who responded to FOLIO:’s Advertising Sales Salary Survey this year present a mixed report from the field—especially when it comes to the impact of e-media. “Online sales will offer additional earning potential,” one respondent said in a verbatim response. “Can’t make as much selling Web offerings as print pages, but they are just as time consuming,” said another.Still, the survey shows ad salaries, in many areas, are healthy and growing, particularly for ad sales or regional managers at consumer magazines who saw an increase of almost 27 percent in base salary last year over the year before.SALARY BY CATEGORY:ADVERTISING SALES DIRECTOR

Amitabh Bachchan and Vivek OberoiInstagram/Varinder ChawlaVivek Oberoi made headlines recently for his “insulting” tweet involving Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But just some time before the controversial tweet, the actress’ father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan made an advisory tweet that goes perfectly for Vivek.Vivek tweeted out a meme that involved him, Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan with Aishwarya. The tweet did not go down well with majority of people, who trolled and lambasted the actor on social media.The concerned meme involved three pictures of Aishwarya – one with Salman, one with Vivek and the last one with Abhishek, referred to as “opinion polls”, “exit polls” and “results” respectively. This co-incidence came to notice of a lot of people, who were surprised to see the veteran actor making this tweet just some minutes before Vivek created the controversy. While some called it a mere co-incidence, some felt it to be Amitabh’s strong “sixth sense”.”Must say that AB’s tweets have prophetic tendencies. He had put out a tweet shortly before Sridevi’s death, and this tweet was put at 12:07 pm & at 1:23 pm Vivek Oberoi tweeted about Aishwarya Rai, Salman Khan & Abhishek Bachchan,” one person replied to Amitabh’s tweet. A lot of people agreed to it as well.It is to be mentioned, something similar had happened before Sridevi’s death. Just a few hours before the news of Sridevi’s death had broken, he had made a tweet that many felt was a premonition from the megastar.Just a few hours before Sridevi’s demise, Amitabh had made a tweet expressing a sense of unease. While Vivek eventually deleted his tweet and apologised for it as well, he might have refrained himself from making this tweet if he had seen Big B’s advice. Just some time before Vivek made the tweet, Amitabh tweeted advising people to be careful with their posts on social media.”Social media par soch samajh kar zikr karo, ae-dost, kahin saamajik aitabaar se gair munaasib na ho,” his tweet in Hindi read.
