Digicel and LIME gain additional 700MHz spectrum, paving the way for LTE services later in 2014

BuddeComm’s annual publication, ‘Jamaica - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband’, profiles the fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets in Jamaica.
Typical for the region, the relative size and rapid expansion of the Jamaican mobile sector continues to underpin growth in the telecommunications industry. The merger between Digicel and Claro in 2012 strengthened Digicel’s dominance of the sector, and the company has since developed its 3G network across the island. Together with the potential of 4G through WiMAX and LTE, the mobile broadband sector is likely to become a major revenue driver in coming years, with competition particularly between Digicel and LIME.

This report contains overviews, analyses and statistics of the Jamaican fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets together with information on convergence issues and on the country’s fixed line incumbent and major mobile operators.

Market highlights:

After securing a licence in the 2.5GHz spectrum, Digicel has built a nationwide WiMAX network for residential customers.
