FLOW goes 3D HDTV et al – Netflix to make FLOW Extinct

FLOW Jamaica will be launching a slew of products by the First Quarter of 2012AD, namely: 300Mbps Broadband Internet speeds 3D HDTV Cable TV packages made possible by this speed increase A TV-Anywhere Concept akin to Comcast XFinity 1GBps product Cloud-Based Video Services, similar to Digicel as per my article “Digicel’s Cloud Backup Services – A deep Analysis”. Apparently the fear of Netflix, slated to come to Latin America and Jamaica by the Fourth Quarter of 2011AD has driven them to change their original plan of offering just HDTV bundles alone, as this was never practical. Neither is 3D HDTV, but at least it won’t be ineffective as the uptake in HDTV channels, as Jamaican have little appreciation for HDTV picture quality, merely seeing such Television sets as “bling”...

Jamaica’s Low Net Penetration – Broadband Internet A Universal Right

Here in the Developing World, such as out little island of Jamaica, there is little interest in PCs or Laptops, which are mostly seen as “bling” to have for the purpose of playing, downloading and burning music and movies. The results of the recently released statistics from an island-wide Caribbean ICT Indicators and Broadband Survey for Jamaica that paint a stark, gloomy picture of Technology adoption in Jamaica.   I am so depressed by these findings, that I fear publishing this article, as it is a sad indictment against a Government of Jamaica that has Ministers who are not Tech-savvy enough to even use email on their Blackberry.

Dekal Wireless: Broadband for the Masses

When Dekal Wireless quietly launched on the scene in July 2010 with advertisements in Jamaica's Sunday Newspaper and very little fanfare, but offering so much more than what was on the table at the time.
