Jamaica's telecom sector is largely propped up by the mobile sector, which accounts for most internet connections as well as a dominant share of sector revenue. The merger between Digicel and Claro's Jamaican business in 2012 strengthened Digicel's position in the market. Both Digicel and its only rival, Flow (supported by its new owner Liberty Global), have extended their LTE networks across the island, offering coverage to about 90% of the population by the end of 2018. Digicel during the year signed a sale and leaseback arrangement affecting a number of base stations and launched its MyCash m-money service, while Liberty Global is in the process of taking complete control of its local unit, trading under the Flow Jamaica banner.

The regulator has endeavoured to develop the MVNO sector in a bid to improve competition. Although it had intended to licence up to 12 operators, only one licence was issued, to Symbiote Investments. This company launched Caricel Jamaica but sold most of its interest in the operator in February 2018. The government has since moved to revoke the licence.

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.
