TSTT launches WiMAX network

25 Nov 2009

Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) has established the country’s first WiMAX network, branded Blink, ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) next week. In April this year TSTT was awarded a temporary licence to deploy the wireless broadband network. During a press conference on Monday, the company’s executive vice president, Jay Alvi, said the introduction of the service has a twofold benefit. ‘It contributes to making Trinidad and Tobago a more desirable place for investors and ensures local businesses, regardless of the size, have access to communications tools that give them the competitive edge,’ he said. Alvi said the company has already invested USD100 million to roll out the 4G network, which is currently available in Port of Spain but will be rolled out to other parts of the country in January 2010.
