Consumers can soon expect faster Internet service thanks to new technology being introduced by service providers in Grand Cayman.
Digicel announced last week it will launch the 4G Long Term Evolution, known as LTE, network spectrum in the Cayman Islands in December, with the project being rolled out in 2014. The company says the LTE spectrum is the latest standard for wireless communication of high-speed data, with the move resulting in faster Internet speeds.
“The 4G LTE mobile networks will bring faster Internet on your mobile, including streaming music and video, video conferencing, faster downloads and more pictures,” the company noted in a news release.
LIME earlier announced plans to introduce the 4G LTE network by the end of the year, which it says will radically improve data speeds and mobile network performance. The system will be accelerated in 2014.
“Customers can look forward to being able to enjoy the same breadth and quality of applications and data speeds as in the U.S. market,” Martin Roos, acting CEO of LIME, said in a news release.
Meanwhile, Logic is expanding its fiber-optic network to boost Internet speed, as well as launch new services including LogicTV. The voice and data provider plans to invest $54 million in new fiber installations during the next five years.
