WestTel has begun work on its island-wide Fibre to the Premises network rollout. The project offers WestTel customers high-speed communications delivered on a fibre-optic platform. The first phase of the CI$15m project will connect Camana Bay and business and condominium developments along West Bay Road.
WestTel is laying its own ducts to keep it separate from other service providers. This feature is designed to appeal to Cayman Islands financial services industry where strict compliance or company rules often require network diversity.
WestTel customers are set to benefit from high-speed, low latency connectivity and some of the most aggressive pricing for network services ever seen in Cayman. As well as Internet, data and voice services, WestTel’s recently launched Utility Computing solutions, where access to IT infrastructure is on a pay-as-you-use basis, makes this a great time to get in touch with their business sales team.
Phase 2 of the rollout will deploy WestTel duct and fibre into George Town’s business district, with subsequent phases bringing the benefits of this technology to residential areas of Grand Cayman.
WestTel Limited was established in 2003 when affiliate company WestStar TV Ltd was granted licences by the Information Communications Technology Authority to deliver Internet and telephone services to the Cayman Islands.
In partnership with Key Tech Limited from Bermuda, WestTel is providing technological support to the Cayman Islands.
WestTel’s core network is housed in a hurricane-proof facility just outside George Town in Grand Cayman, the towers of which are rated to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. Security features include data encryption, filtering and flow control features, tools for authentication of legitimate users and built-in support for virtual private users.
