APUA launching sub-XCD100 fibre offer as FTTH rollout set to reach north Antigua

27 Jul 2021

State-owned utilities, fixed line and broadband operator Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) is launching a basic fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband package with a minimum connection speed of 100Mbps, Minister of Public Utilities, Sir Robyn Yearwood, has confirmed. APUA, which offers high speed broadband in the country under the brand name inet, will price the new service at below XCD100 (USD37) per month, the minister disclosed, markedly lower than the XCD335 it currently charges for a 20Mbps/10Mbps entry-level plan and XCD160 for a 10Mbps/1Mbps ‘Super DSL’ line. Indeed, APUA’s new service coincides with the rollout of FTTH on the north side of Antigua with communities there ‘now ready to convert from DSL, since the infrastructural work is complete’. Further, he pointed out that ‘Soon, APUA will have laid the cables throughout Antigua, enabling the best and lowest-cost service in the state’.
