The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GTT) has announced that it is getting ready to roll out its 4G (fourth generation) service.
The service is expected to bring faster internet service to mobile customers that will allow for viewing of high definition (HD) YouTube
videos and video conferencing.
GTT, which has the monopoly on landline and international calls in the country, is likely to face competition from this year as new laws are about to be considered by the National Assembly that will see new companies entering the telecommunications market.
“Customers will enjoy a new and exciting experience with the roll out of GTT’s 4G service giving them the opportunity to Do More with faster speeds,” the company said yesterday in a release on the 4G roll out.
“Finally, we will bring you 4G. I know that you’ve waited a long time, and I am as happy as you to say that we have received approval from the Government,” said GTT’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Justin Nedd
“Our 4G mobile network will enable you to connect to the internet much faster than ever before, whether to browse, watch videos or movies, download music or shop online. All smart phones sold by GTT are ready to experience the faster speeds,” he added.
GTT said that Minister of Public Telecommunications, Cathy Hughes, has been visionary and forthright in acknowledging GTT’s ability to Do More for its customers.
“We are happy to announce that in close cooperation with GTT we are able to provide high speed broadband services. This is the way for our country and it underlines that GTT is ready to Do More for Guyana and for their customers”, she said.
The service will be available to GTT’s mobile customers with active data plans in Georgetown. Additional areas will soon be activated to offer more customers this new experience.
“GTT takes this opportunity to thank its loyal customers, for their business and we welcome new customers to experience 4G.”
4G, short for fourth generation, is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology, succeeding 3G. A 4G system must provide capabilities which include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television, and cloud computing.
The proposed telecoms liberalisation laws, in limbo for a number of years now, are expected to be laid by next month in the National Assembly.
Consumers have been complaining about slow internet speeds on their mobile handsets for some time now.
The telephone companies have blamed the delay in approval by consecutive Governments and the non-release of frequencies for the poor quality of data service to its mobile phone customers.
