Telecommunications in Antigua & Barbuda
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.
Antigua and Barbuda has made substantial progress in the market for ICT services. Increased competition has fostered both the expansion of services provision and viable pricing when compared not only with the regional levels but also worldwide, resulting in a high share of the population regularly using the Internet.
Antigua and Barbuda’s steps towards industry development have resulted in remarkable progress over the years, noteworthy both with respect to service take-up and its competitive pricing levels and Internet speed.
