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 the Cayman Islands - July 2007 Review

American lawmakers and tax policy experts are puting a cautionary and intent eye on the Cayman Islands. One particular piece of proposed legislation is the so-called Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act, which seeks to combat ‘offshore secrecy’ that it claims enables “offshore tax havens to hide $100 billion in US tax revenues”. According to a New York Times article by Lynnley Browning published 1 July, the attention stems from the Islands becoming the ‘corporate home’ to three quarters of global hedge funds - funds which, it reports, are being used by US individuals and institutions to avoid tax responsibilities.

From what is known of the US Inland Revenue Service, it is an institution not to be trifled with and the Cayman government may find itself embroiled in a battle between this Federal agency and the American fund managers who choose to set up shop in the Islands.

The Cayman government has long sought to combat the perception held by many Americans that doing business in Cayman could put them in an unfavourable and dubious light. In the past, the Islands’ tax regime had been used by unscrupulous individuals to launder money and engage in other questionable fiscal practices.

Being fingered in the Enron debacle did not serve to help matters either. Nowadays, a source in the article claimed, bogus hedge funds are being set up on the Islands as part of a larger tax-evasion gimmick. This places the local laws regarding hedge funds and the impact of such laws on US tax policy under greater scrutiny.
