GTT gets green light for 4G service


Telecommunications Company GTT has indicated that approval has been granted by government for the roll out of its 4G service.

In a press release Friday, GTT said customers will enjoy a new and exciting experience with the roll out of this service, giving them the opportunity to “Do More” with faster speeds.

The company did not indicate from exactly when customers would begin enjoying the long-awaited 4G service and NewsNow was unable to reach any official of GTT to determine this.

In the press release, CEO Justin Nedd said, “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.”

“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.

Minister of Public Telecommunications Cathy Hughes has been visionary and forthright in acknowledging GTT’s ability to Do More for their 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 and additional areas will soon be activated to offer more customers this new experience.

GTT said it takes this opportunity to thank its loyal customers for their business and “we welcome new customers to experience 4G.”

It was recently reported that  after lengthy consultations, and delays, the Telecommunications Bill is expected to be tabled in the National Assembly by the end of May 2016.
