Antigua and Barbuda is a sovereign state in the Americas, lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It consists of two major islands, Antigua and Barbuda, and a number of smaller islands (including Great Bird, Green, Guiana, Long, Maiden and York Islands and further south, the island of Redonda).

According to latest ITU data (June 2018) both mobile and 4G LTE coverage reaches 99% of the population. These high penetration rates are attributed to the competitive approach adopted by the country.
