Government-owned Telecommunications Services of Trinidad & Tobago (TSTT) has announced that it has signed a network sharing agreement with Massy Communications, the country’s newest operator in the consumer telecoms field. The development was confirmed by TSTT chairman Emile Elias via a telephone interview with the Daily Express on 21 February, and one week prior to this, Kirtson George, TSTT’s Senior Manager for Infrastructure Design and Maintenance, emailed the telco’s staff noting: ‘The Massy [network] sharing agreement was signed today. Both TSTT and Massy have open access to each other’s network.’
As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, Massy Communications (an enterprise data services provider since 2006 under its old name Three Sixty Communications) entered Trinidad & Tobago’s consumer pay-TV and super-high speed fibre internet markets last year, with the launch of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and IPTV services on 29 February 2016. The services are delivered over a Gigabit Passive Optic Network (GPON) system.
