As Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago continues to expand its 4G LTE network launched under the bmobile brand in 2016, Digicel began the rollout of its 4G LTE network in early 2018, promising eventual island-wide coverage. However, local operations for the company are facing a potential consolidation phase over 2018 and 2019, as the group’s transformation programme mandates a global 25% reduction in its workforce. This trend of consolidation is anticipated to persist in other large companies, as operators introduce measures to advance their long-term strategies in pursuit of digital transformation. With a key sector development strategy already in place, the state aims to increase IT’s contribution to 5% by 2021, and as growth indicators in a number of segments are picking up, prospects for T&T’s ICT sector are positive. This chapter contains an interview with Ronald Walcott, CEO, Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago.
