Columbus Business Solution (CBS), part of the Columbus Communications group, has revealed plans to invest USD400 million in Central America during 2015, in order to position itself as a major business-to-business (B2B) telecoms player in the region. Daniel Pineda, the manager of CBS’ Honduran unit, told La Prensa: ‘The projects to be developed vary from market to market, some of which are promoting the integration of mobile, fixed and cable television networks’. CBS claims to be the only B2B technology brand in the region equipped to offer end-to-end solutions to organisations of any size, in any industry. CBS currently has a presence in the Central American nations of Panama, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, with additional business units in Colombia, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Grenada, Curacao and Barbados.
CBS is supported by Columbus Networks, which provides capacity and IP services, corporate data solutions and data centre hosting throughout 42 countries in the greater Caribbean, Central American and Andean region. Columbus presides over a fibre-optic submarine network spanning close to 42,300km, as well as a 26,400km terrestrial fibre and coaxial network.
