Guyana to improve Internet service, lower rates

Guyana is talking with one of China’s largest telecommunication suppliers as it finalizes a plan to provide cheaper Internet access and provide connection in rural areas. President Bharrat Jagdeo says he met with representatives from Huawei Technologies Co. to talk about installing a fiber optic cable network along the coast of the South American country. Jagdeo also seeks to broaden available bandwidth to attract construction of call centers and data-management businesses. A new USD 60m cable installed in January that runs from Suriname to Guyana is expected to lower rates and speed up connections by next month. Jagdeo said Friday that he also expects to bring another cable from Brazil to help improve services.
