Caribbean Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics
Almost all Caribbean countries offer a full range of telecom services, despite being characterised by small markets in terms of population. Liberalisation agreements have been reached in most countries. The major mobile players are the incumbent Cable & Wireless and Digicel which, in June 2005, agreed to acquire all the Caribbean operations of Cingular Wireless. The region’s mobile subscriber base is concentrated in the hands of these two major players, with only a few smaller companies edging their way into the newly liberalised markets. This Paul Budde report provides an overview of the Caribbean’s telecom sector accompanied by relevant statistics and a brief profile of the major players.

Broadband and Consumer E-Commerce in Antigua and Barbuda

May 2015 Review


Antigua and Barbuda has embraced information and communications technology as a "key contributor" to the development of the country. To this end the government has established some key institutions: an Information Technology Centre, a Government Data Centre, and a wide area network. These initiatives have facilitated the re-engineering of the Customs and Inland Revenue departments, and other Government finance procedures have also been re-tooled. There is also an active Internet domain name registry which administers and collects fees for the .AG top level domain name.

A Strategic Plan for information and communications technology has been drafted and several of the objectives have already been achieved. Among the strategic objectives included in the Plan are the promotion of public awareness, access to government information, online government services, the provision of an e-commerce portal, affordable access to computers, and human capacity building.
