TSTT launches 4G services in Trinidad & Tobago

Wednesday 14 December 2016 | 10:42 CET | News
Trinidad & Tobago's state-run operator TSTT has launched 4G services using the 1900MHz frequency band just a week after securing a TTD 2 billion to help fund its broadband rollout plans, reports local daily Trinidad Guardian. The operator is currently offering 4G services in Port-of-Spain, San Fernando and at six sites in Tobago, primarily in the south of the island. However, its plans to cover 85 percent of Trinidad & Tobago are hampered by the decision of the Telecommunications Authority (TATT) not to assign 700MHz spectrum to any current players in the field, said the report.
