DEON McFarlane and Iesha Reid were the winners of two Digicel gift packages each in the precursor to Digicel's Brighten Someone's Christmas promotion.

The competition was published in last Friday's Auto and the hand over took place at the Jamaica Observer's Beechwood Avenue office.

The prize package included a Digicel Pocket WiFi 4G Broadband modem and a $5,000-gas voucher.

"Deon actually thought she was entering a contest for the grand prize, which was the Evoque," joked Carey Peterkin, who collected on McFarlane's behalf.

Reid, who hails from St Thomas, said she nearly missed out twice.

"On my first entry, I didn't put my contact details so I had to send a second one. Then my phone rebooted, making me not get the first call telling me I had won," she said.

With the pocket modem, both will now have near constant high-speed wireless Internet connectivity.

"Our Christmas promotion is to get data into everyone's hands," said Michelle Anderson, Digicel's head of 4G broadband.

The grand prize, which will be drawn on January 9, is a 2013 Range Rover Evoque.

Anderson explained that the Evoque was chosen as it was a vehicle that persons "aspire" to own.

The Range Rover comes packed with 240-horsepower and a six-speed transmission.

Its wide range of features includes cruise control; outside air temperature indicator; intelligent driver front airbag, intelligent passenger front airbag with occupant switch-off; smart card/smart key includes keyless starter; steering wheel-mounted remote audio controls; and auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
