Cayman Islands ISP Logic Communications has launched a new fixed-wireless home broadband service in eastern districts of Grand Cayman not currently covered by its fibre-optic network.
According to a statement from the telecommunications outfit, the new 4G LTE service replaces a fixed-wireless network withdrawn in 2020 and provides download/upload speeds of 10Mbps/5Mbps for KYD65 (USD78) a month or 30Mbps/15Mbps (KYD105).
“We are excited to finally be able to offer residents and businesses in the Eastern Districts of the island a great internet experience,” Rob McNabb, CEO of Logic, said in a release from the company. “It’s been far too long that they’ve gone without an internet product that can meet all of their needs,” he added.
The launch of the service in the Eastern District marks the beginning of Logic’s yearlong roll-out of wireless broadband into other underserved and rural areas in Grand Cayman and its sister islands Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, said the release.
It plans to expand the footprint of its wireless and fibre-optic networks over the coming year to provide reliable broadband to 100% of Grand Cayman and Sister Island.
The operator also noted the LTE network will be upgradeable to 5G in the future.
McNabb, in his remarks, also thanked local regulator OfReg for “a good job pushing us to expand our broadband coverage.
