Screen_Shot_2015-06-03_at_7.57.09_PMThis year’s regional Information and Communications Technology (ICT) survey shows that Belize still has the most expensive internet rates and the broadband speed is still lagging behind. Despite this fact, the report indicates that Internet prices are decreasing across the Caribbean. The report states that under International Telecommunications Union standards, between 1.5 and 2 Mbps is considered the threshold speed for classifying an Internet service as broadband. Of the 19 countries surveyed, 13 countries offer the lowest download speeds of 2 Mbps and under. ISPs in Aruba, Belize and Guyana are still offering Internet plans with advertised download speeds of 256 kbps. Sixteen countries offer broadband packages with a maximum advertised download speed of at least 8 Mbps.

The lowest advertised price was recorded in Trinidad and Tobago, at $22.15 USD, followed by Grenada at $24.48 USD and Curacao at $24.55 USD. The report says at the opposite end of the spectrum, the highest prices for a 2 Mbps plan was $69.49 USD in Belize, and was followed by the Antigua and Barbuda at $62.20 USD. And as the Internet becomes increasingly important across the Caribbean, the telecoms providers themselves are continually adjusting and refining their offerings in that market.
