Flow Barbados launches 1 Gbps broadband service

Friday 11 March 2016 | 10:16 CET | News
Flow Barbados, the local unit of Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), has begun offering a 1 Gbps broadband service to all customers connected to its FTTH network, reports local daily The Broad Street Journal, citing Flow Barbados managing director Niall Sheehy. Although the 1 Gbps service was first introduced by the company in 2014 as a special request, it has now been made available to all customers to meet with ever-increasing demand. "Reliable access to high-speed broadband is critical to connecting Barbados to the digital world," said Sheey.
