Basseterre, St. Kitts: Tuesday, January 28, 2014 – LIME will host the 30th Annual General Meeting of the Caribbean Association of National Telecommunications Operators (CANTO) in Montego Bay, Jamaica from January 25-28, 2014.
Under the Theme, “Strategic Alliances for Sustainable Broadband Development”, delegates will look at how telecoms operators within the region can develop strategies to accomplish broadband infrastructural development throughout the Caribbean.
During the four-day event the CANTO Board will host a series of seminars ranging from financing Broadband development in the Caribbean to tackling the urgent issue of electronic waste disposal.
The benefits of ‘mobile money’ as an increasingly popular alternative method of payment will also be discussed during an overall look at the impact of emerging technology upon telecoms operators in the Caribbean.
According to CANTO Chairman, Dirk Currie, “Our sector has always been in a mode where change was the only constant factor. Even within change we experience that the speed of change is drastically increasing. So as organizations we have less time available to adapt to the changing environment which are driven by technology and innovation.” 2014 heralds CANTO’s ‘Pearl’ anniversary – 30 years of proudly serving its members in the ICT sector, in a multiplicity of ways.
CANTO, founded in 1984, started with eight operators from eight Caribbean countries. 30 years later the association has proudly
grown to over 130 members in 34 countries.
To mark this milestone CANTO will continue to observe its present broadband thrust through its theme “Strategic Alliances for
Sustainable Broadband Development” which exudes the association’s desire to enter into Strategic Alliances to accomplish
most specifically, broadband infrastructural development throughout the Caribbean.There is an acute need at this juncture, as the demand for high-quality broadband in the Caribbean especially that of a wireless nature, far exceeds supply.
LIME. Value Every Moment.
