St. Kitts and Nevis officially the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis (or the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis), located in the Leeward Islands, is a unitary island nation in the Caribbean and the smallest nation in the Americas in both area and population. The capital city and government for the federated state is mainly on the larger island of Saint Kitts (formerly named Saint Christopher). The smaller state of Nevis (formerly named: Nuestra Señora de las Nieves) lies about 3 km southeast of Saint Kitts.

Historically the British dependency of Anguilla was also a part of this union, which was then known collectively as Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla. Although Saint Kitts and Nevis are geographically within the Leeward Islands, they are relatively close to a cluster of several other islands. To the north-northwest lie the islands of Saint Eustatius, Saba, Saint Barthélemy, and Saint Martin. To the northeast are Antigua and Barbuda, and to the south-east is Montserrat.

Both the names Saint Christopher and Saint Kitts are given in the Constitution of Saint Christopher and Nevis.

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 St. Kitts and Nevis

June 2009 Review


The St. Kitts-Nevis Administration’s policy to exempt nationals and residents from the payment of customs duties on computers has been paying dividends in ensuring a computer literate society.

The World Bank World Development Indicators database for St.Kitts and Nevis is reporting positive trends and states that internet users jumped from 1,500 in 1998 to 10,000 in 2002.

St. Kitts and Nevis is classified as “an upper middle income and moderately indebted country.” For comparison, St. Lucia is also classified as an upper middle income and moderately indebted country. Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda have incomplete information. On the other hand, both Guyana and Jamaica are classified as lower middle income and severely indebted countries, according to the United Nations official stats.

The World Bank data also show good progress in technological advancement in St. Kitts and Nevis. In 2002, St. Kitts and Nevis with a population of 46,000, had 606.4 units of fixed lines and mobile telephones per 1,000 people; 191.5 personal computers per 1,000 people and 10,000 internet users. In 1998, there were only 1,500 internet users.

In comparison, Antigua and Barbuda, with a population of 69,000 had 977.6 units of fixed lines and mobile telephones per 1,000 people and 10,000 internet users, while Barbados had 104.1 personal computers per 1,000 people and 30,000 internet users for its population of 269,000.

In regard to the environment, in absolute terms St. Kitts and Nevis has one of the lowest levels of carbon dioxide emissions in the CARICOM region, indeed in the world and in line with the islands of the Pacific region. Data for 2000 show levels of carbon dioxide emissions of 103 thousand metric tons for St. Kitts and Nevis, 352 thousand metric tons for Antigua and Barbuda and 1,176 thousand metric tons for Barbados, according to the United Nations data.
