Fixed and mobile operator FLOW Jamaica has announced that it has begun rolling out 4G LTE technology on its networks. The company’s managing director, Garfield Sinclair, commented: ‘Initially we will be rolling out LTE in major high traffic sections of the Kingston metropolitan area and of the North Coast.’ He added: ‘These are indeed exciting times for the FLOW brand as we are constantly pushing the boundaries in our bid to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.’ The operator has not revealed when it plans to launch commercial 4G services.
FLOW incorporates the businesses of LIME Jamaica and cableco FLOW following the USD3 billion regional merger last year of their parent companies, Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) and Columbus Communications. The other mobile operator on the island, Digicel, acquired 700MHz spectrum for 4G in 2014 but has still to announce plans for a rollout of LTE-based services.
