The highly anticipated launch of bmobile 4G services this week left many customers feeling it was worth the wait. The company unveiled pricing plans and services that set new benchmarks in the Caribbean, completely eclipsing other competing local offers.

There are many jewels in the bmobile 4G crown. These include being the sole authorized provider of iPhone 5’s at very attractive prices; making Trinidad and Tobago customers beneficiaries of highspeed data rates among the lowest in the region and an unmatchable offer - FREE UNLIMITED DATA at 50 popular bzones nationwide. “Handset prices, handset quality and rates have been three barriers which before now were keeping the benefits of 4G data away from most of the country. We focused on breaking down those barriers, bridging the digital device and delighting our customers” said acting Executive Vice President of bmobile Ronald Walcott.

 

Acting CEO Dianna de Sousa said bmobile 4G was not driven by purely commercial considerations which has given the company an advantage. “We pursued an aggressive $500 M wireless broadband strategy along with ensuring that it was affordable to all.” Mrs. De Sousa said the company recognized the importance of the product not just to individuals and businesses but also to national development and giving T&T world-class national infrastructure for Information Communications Technology (ICT).

“4G but not just 4G” is the defining philosophy behind bmobile’s 4G offering. This was echoed by de Sousa and TSTT Chairman Everald Snaggs. “For us at TSTT, when it comes to investing in technology, it is never a question of if, but rather when, how much and in what direction. We also must affirm that it is beneficial for the company and for the country as a whole” said Snaggs. The TSTT Chairman believed that Telecommunications Technology was the lubrication that helped the wheels of industry continue to turn effortlessly and in fact consistently provided glimmers of consumer optimism even in the face of slow economic activity.
