Cable & Wireless recently completed a major project in Little Cayman to improve communications for the island’s residents and visitors.
A group of employees, who are normally based in Cayman Brac, spent a week running over 15,000 feet of cable along the north coast of the island to provide Internet access and fixed line services. Prior to this project, north coast residents had to rely on cellular phones for communications, said a company press release.
The first fixed line customer was connected on 22 March, thanks to the efforts of staff members Eugene Thompson, Clayton Conolly, Jason McLaughlin and Lorraine Brown.
The project to provide fixed line services began in September 2004 but was delayed by faulty vehicles and Hurricane Ivan.
‘For many of us in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, it is hard to imagine not having access to the Internet,’ commented Ian Tibbetts, Chief Operating Officer at C&W. ‘Therefore we are pleased to complete this work to give Little Cayman’s residents the first-rate telecommunications that we all take for granted.’
