Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) says that it will become the first operator to launch LTE mobile data services in the Cayman Islands, where it trades as Lime.
CWC said that it will launch LTE services in the 2013/14 financial year initially on Grand Cayman.
CWC was awarded the mobile spectrum over which it will broadcast LTE services having won a competitive tender process, where it was awarded two blocks of spectrum in the 700Mhz spectrum band.
The LTE network will be built largely using existing mobile cell sites. Network equipment will be supplied by Ericsson.
Martin Roos, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Lime said: "Just over two years after launching 4G mobile services across all three of the Cayman Islands Lime has acquired an LTE license and additional frequencies which will enable us to provide super-fast mobile data services on the next generation of technology. This is a huge investment in not only our network capability, which will bring great benefits to our customers, but also in Cayman."
