On November 1, the Rhyne Park Community in St. James became the first Jamaican community to surf the web using ‘Fibre to the Home’ (FTTH) – the latest technology in high speed internet connection being introduced by LIME. The service is also available in the Morris Meadows community located in St. Catherine.
“This technology will revolutionize the in-home internet experience” says LIME Managing Director, Garry Sinclair, “Our suite of solutions is based on the new, cutting edge Fiber to the Home technology which provides homeowners with improved service, convenience, comfort and security.”
The fiber technology from LIME allows customers to get speeds up to 100 Mbps facilitating most, if not all, Internet-based applications available today. The technology also prepares the customer for future applications that will require huge amounts of bandwidth.
“Our aim is to make homes ‘smarter with fiber’ by using the speed and superior quality provided by this technology to deliver our landline, internet and entertainment products, demonstrating further that LIME is truly for living, everyday” Sinclair highlighted.
“We are very pleased to offer this first class telecommunications solution to these communities which will change the way technology is used in the home.” he added.
The introductory package called “Ignite” starts at 12Mbps and is priced at only J$2,400 plus GCT. This can facilitate most of the commonly used applications today, such as Facebook®, Twitter® and other social forums, faster media downloads, VOIP calling and enhanced content streaming.
Other packages are available (up to 100 mbps) and are geared toward homes that require a lot of bandwith to complete existing applications at blistering speed. The higher bandwidth packages will also facilitate multiple high definition channels on LIME TV services that will soon be launched in Jamaica.
