F1rst is an internet service that is offering location-based service targeted at businesses and consumers in the Caribbean.

Google Play Movies expands to Jamaica, Trinidad and 10+ more Countries

Many countries and regions of the world especially the Caribbean is often region-locked from many online services available to larger more affluent countries. Also, some of the few times countries like Jamaica, Trinidad and Antigua and Barbuda are included we are stuck with watered down selections (Netflix) or grouped together with Latin America because apparently all of the Caribbean speaks Spanish.

Netflix service coming to the Caribbean and Latin America

Netflix is reporting through their official blog that they plan to start offering their streaming service in Latin America and the Caribbean later this year. The blog post doesn't go into detail about the individual counties only stating that they will expand into 43 countries in the region. I take heart in the fact that Latin America and the Caribbean were separated as too often smaller English speaking counties like Trinidad, Jamaica and Barbados were labeled as Latin America incorrectly with services only provided in Spanish and Portuguese. Caribbean Tech Explosion Internet access and speeds have exploded in the Caribbean in recent years as well as tech-related consumer products such as smart-phones, HD TVs and Video Game consoles. It would be interesting to follow the deployment of...
