New Subsea Cable Company Making a Splash in the Caribbean

Caribbean countries are experiencing a surge in demand for advanced telecommunications services, including access to international and regional telecom operators, regional network and Over-The-Top (OTT) content providers. Large enterprises in the region, such as financial services and oil & gas companies, are also seeking more reliable and lower latency connectivity. Caribbean bandwidth demand is strong, and high growth is forecast to continue due to ongoing regional investment in fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure. In fact, 10-year growth is predicted to reach a minimum of 50 times existing capacity because of the increased demand of social media, smart phones, HD cable TV, and Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB). Investment in terrestrial backhaul and domestic network capacity has also led to an increase in aggregate demand for off-island capacity.
