Monday, September 5th, 2016 – Barbados: Digicel today announced that, in tandem with its technology partner Huawei, it had delivered fibre speeds of 100,000Mbps (100Gbps) in a real live environment in Barbados. This follows a successful test of 10,000Mbps in Jamaica earlier this year
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man, was announced as Digicel’s Chief Speed Officer, the test was successfully conducted at Baobab Towers, St. Michael, Barbados on Monday, August 22nd on Digicel’s 100% fibre-optic access network. This was the first of its kind in the region making Barbados the “fastest” country in the Caribbean. The achievement is a significant one for the Caribbean nation as the successful test took place less than 100 days to Barbados’ celebrations of 50 years of independence.
