Flow Jamaica launches LTE on its mobile networks
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 extended its 3G network across the island and is looking to add LTE. This will considerably improve access to broadband services, and raise the relatively low penetration rate.

In early 2015 Cable & Wireless acquired Columbus Communications, so consolidating its leading market position in the region. The existing Flow brand for pay-TV services in Jamaica has been extended to most of Cable & Wireless's Caribbean footprint.

A number of regulatory measures have been in train, including the introduction of number portability and a system to monitor quality of service parameters for fixed and mobile telephony as well as internet services.
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.
