Logic rolls out broadband for Eastern Districts

| 22/04/2021 | 22 Comments

(CNS): Logic has launched a new fixed wireless home internet service in the Eastern Districts of Grand Cayman, bringing broadband internet speeds to areas of the island that have been under-served when it comes to this important communication service, the telecommunications company said in a press release. Logic said it plans to expand its fixed wireless internet coverage over the coming year along with its fibre to the home footprint to cover 100% of Grand Cayman and the Sister Islands with a reliable broadband internet product.

The fixed wireless network will also be upgradeable to 5G in the future, which will deliver even faster speeds .

The issue of poor internet service in the outer districts has been a major area of complaint, and residents have pointed the finger at the Utility Regulation and Competition Office (OfReg) for failing to hold the communication companies to account. Logic said in the release that the regulator had been instrumental in this rollout.

“We are excited to finally be able to offer residents and businesses in the Eastern Districts of the island a great internet experience,” said Rob McNabb CEO of Logic. “It’s been far too long that they’ve gone without an internet product that can meet all of their needs. OfReg has done a good job pushing us to expand our broadband coverage and we are happy to say that we now cover approximately 90% of the population of Grand Cayman with broadband internet… and we are pushing hard to cover the rest of Cayman as soon as we can.”

Anyone east of Frank Sound Road can subscribe to the new service and customers within a two-mile radius west of Frank Sound Road will be covered.

    Unless it’s fibre, who cares?

    It’s blindingly obvious that an island this size doesn’t need 3 ISP’s all with their own infrastructure which has sealed our fate as the most expensive place on earth for slow Internet service. CIG should have rolled out a single fiber network 20 years ago island wide and licenced off bandwidth to the usual suspects.

    Starlink soon come.

      Read much? With the wireless networks the trenches can be shallow and much narrower. It’s almost impossible to see them.

        You must drive on different roads than me Bobo.

        No need for trenches at all – it’s like cell phone internet. Comes to a little box with a SIM card that you put in your house and it has WiFi coming out.

          I keep saying that CNS needs a sarcasm font, but even that can’t help.

            To be fair even if one gives the benefit of the doubt and assumes sarcasm it’s still just a stupid comment.

          They still have to run heavy cables out to the towers. Digging trenches between High Rock and Shetty at the moment.

          And in Caymankind world wireless broadband gets you no more than 12mbps using the crappy supplied Huawei router.

            True enough, 10:52. The crappy router from Digicel is just barely good enough for streaming video, and they have monthly data caps. Hoping that Logic will provide something better – quantity and quality – it’s called competition.

        Why does a wireless network need any kind of trench?

        Change them el cheapo manholes like the one by Da Fish Shack first.

    Digicel has had this for years. Will the Logic product be cost-competitive with Digicel?

      Doesn’t Digicel have data limits on their offering? Is Logic doing the same? Also, the Digicel service is unreliable (there are times when it will simply go offline for 15 minutes) and trying to reach out to their customer service operation for a resolution is like speaking into a black hole. Let’s hope that the Logic customer service is better as Digicel has demonstrated that they simply don’t care.
