Cable & Wireless Communications has announced that it will launch LTE services later this year as part of its Christmas marketing campaign in The Bahamas.
CWC first launched mobile data services in The Bahamas, where it trades as The Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC), in December 2011 and says that it has seen rapid usage growth.
The network upgrade, which will be undertaken by Huawei, will be phased, with services initially available in New Providence, the most populated island, followed by a roll-out across the rest of the country.
BTC has been granted a 15 year licence to provide LTE mobile data services on the 700Mhz frequency.
