BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS—Columbus International Inc. ("Columbus") has announced that it officially acquired formal approval to enter the Barbados telecommunications market. The approval includes the acquisition of TeleBarbados and all requisite licenses to provide wholesale and retail broadband-enabled services for both businesses and consumers.
In his video address to CTU ICT Roadshow attendees, Brendan Paddick, CEO of Columbus Communications, said: "Barbados' high quality infrastructure, excellent workforce and reliable institutions provides the foundation for Barbadians to use technology to transform their country."
He continued, "Having effectively lowered telecommunications costs, provided affordable access and forced existing players to raise their game in every market we have entered, Columbus is eager to replicate the same success in Barbados." Over the past eight years, Columbus has invested well over $1 billion in its subsea and terrestrial networks, which now span 23 countries.
