C&W Communications officially launches ‘JUMP’

A plan to deliver all-important internet connections to low-income Caribbean households has been unveiled as part of a privatepublic partnership between leading telecoms operator C&W Communications and some Caribbean countries.

Aptly called JUMP, the initiative aims to help bridge the digital divide and foster greater digital inclusion in a region that today still has less than 65% broadband penetration with 27 million users from a total combined population of 44 million.

In partnership with local governments, C&W Communications, the operators of Flow, Flow Business, C&W Business and BTC, will provide qualifying households with a subsidised high-speed internet connection, a free laptop computer and relevant training for individuals and families.
