“Jamaica - Telecoms, IP Networks, Digital Media and Forecasts”
After securing a licence in the 2.5GHz spectrum, in 2010 Digicel launched its much-anticipated nationwide WiMAX network for residential customers. Although subscriber data has yet to be reported, Digicel has expressed positive views about initial subscriber uptake.
Shortly after Digicel's WiMAX launch, in late 2010 Claro announced that it would be deploying an LTE wireless platform, allegedly capable of speeds of up to 170Mb/s. The deployment is part of Claro's US$300 million capital investment in the build-out of its entire wireless network.
In 2010 LIME announced that it would be investing US$600 million in new services and upgrades across the region, of which an estimated US$150 million would be in Jamaica. The investment will consolidate Jamaica as the hub of LIME's regional operations, handling finance, procurement and human resource operations for all 13 LIME markets.
In February 2011 Cable & Wireless Communications completed laying its US$35 million East-West cable between Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic. The submarine cable is expected to significantly augment capacity for data and telephony services.
The mobile market leader in early 2011 remained Digicel Jamaica, with approximately three times the market share of second-placed LIME. América Móvils Claro was the third largest operator.
In 2010 LIME secured an island-wide subscriber television wireless licences which may ultimately bring valuable competition to a market currently dominated by Columbus Communications Networks' Flow.
Cable broadband has made strong inroads into the broadband sector, significantly higher than its 4% share in 2006. The growth is largely due to the relatively high penetration of CATV in Jamaica together with significant investment by Flow and a number of new licence applications and licence extension applications offered by the BCJ.
The BCJ planned by mid-2012 to have a road-map for the switchover to digital broadcasting, including technical standards to be adopted.
