LIME launched 4G LTE in Antigua and Barbuda, the first over mobile network AWS in the Caribbean, Antigua Chronicle reported.
The launch is part of the 37mn-East Caribbean dollar (US$13mn) upgrade in the country under the capital investment program Project Marlin. Partner company Cable & Wireless (CWC) started the program, valued at US$1.05bn, in August to update the wireless network of the islands through networks, Wi-Fi hotspots, TV services and business-to-business.
The LTE network was deployed by Ericsson and covers the totality of the islands.
CWC's subsidiaries in Bahamas, Dominica and the Cayman Islands have already deployed LTE, which is expected to reach Panama and the Virgin Islands in the coming months.
