Flow activates Barbados 4G network

Wednesday 29 March 2017 | 10:17 CET | News
Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) has announced that its Flow subsidiary has officially launched its 4G LTE service in Barbados. The operator has already invested some BBD 70 million (around USD 35 million) to activate 35 LTE-base stations all over the island and has earmarked a further BBD 80 million for 2017, interim managing director Jenson Sylvester told local daily NationNews. Rival Digicel was the first to launch 4G services on the island in October last year.
