UK-based Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), the parent company of fixed and mobile operator FLOW Dominica, has acquired local cable company Marpin 2K4 from its sole shareholder Dominica Social Security (DSS). Dominica News Online reports that Marpin’s approximately 12,500 cable TV and broadband customers will be able to benefit from FLOW’s service platforms, while the addition of Marpin will enable FLOW to offer cable TV in addition to its mobile, fixed line telephony and broadband services. ‘This is great news for our customers and employees, as this new development further demonstrates our commitment to Dominica, through continued investment and [delivering] expanded products and services to Dominicans,’ FLOW’s General Manager Jeffrey Baptiste was quoted as saying. He added that with the experience of CWC’s parent Liberty Global, FLOW will be able to offer customers new features, such as HD television and multi-platform viewing, as well as the introduction of new local, regional and international content.
