Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), operating under the LIME banner, and Swedish equipment vendor Ericsson have completed the rollout of the cellco’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in the Cayman Islands, which now covers 100% of the country’s territory. According to a joint press release, the complete LTE solution included the deployment of a new Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and new HSS (Home Subscriber Server), as well as new radio base stations for 4G/LTE, which resulted in higher capacity and enhanced mobile data service. Further, the vendor has also expanded the footprint of LIME’s HSPA 3.5G network to cover 100% of the country. LIME revealed that since the upgrades took place, average data traffic over its mobile networks has increased 68-fold.
LIME Cayman Islands’ CEO Bill McCabe commented: ‘At LIME, we value innovation and the skills to provide excellence in services; we have made a huge effort to deliver an unbeatable mobile data customer experience. Together with Ericsson, we are able to provide our customers with superior mobile data services and performance based on a complete LTE solution.’
