KINGSTON, Jamaica – Telecommunications company FLOW  has announced that it is carrying out work on a Long Term Evolution (LTE) upgrade to sections of its network that will introduce advanced next-generation mobile internet speeds to Jamaica.
In a press release, FLOW described the move as ground-breaking and said that it will facilitate mobile internet connectivity of up to 10 times faster than the 4G mobile speeds which FLOW subscribers all across Jamaica now enjoy.  
“These are indeed exciting times for the FLOW brand as we are constantly pushing the boundaries in our bid to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers,” said Garfield Sinclair, managing director of FLOW Jamaica.
Sinclair added that this technology is sure to delight customers as it places Jamaica on par with, if not ahead, of many developed countries around the globe.
“Initially we will be rolling out LTE in major high traffic sections of the Kingston metropolitan area and of the North Coast,” he explained.
With the use of handheld devices including smartphones, tablets and Wi-Fi devices, customers will be able to access super-fast Mobile Internet network with connectivity that is expected to be up to 50  megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 5 Mbps on the uplink in areas where the service is introduced.
