The first 4G network to launch in the Cayman Islands has gone live. LIME, the Caribbean business of Cable & Wireless Communications, has deployed the network as part of its strategy to be the first telecoms operator to offer 4G mobile services across the Caribbean region. The business is now in the process of a phased upgrade of its networks to incorporate HSPA+ services.
The Cayman 4G network provides 100% coverage of the three Cayman islands (Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac).The upgrade to 4G services will enable customers to enjoy more mobile data services such as video and gaming applications on smartphones.
Customers will have the option of several price plans in order to access 4G services, with postpaid plans including bundles of voice minutes, texts and mobile data. The operator is aiming to extend its 4G reach across another 12 Caribbean markets over the next 18 months.
