Flow Launches Mo­bile 4G LTE

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Saint Lu­cia is now the lat­est Caribbean mar­ket to join the mod­ern mo­bile rev­o­lu­tion, with the ad­di­tion of high-speed 4G LTE to the ser­vice port­fo­lio of the is­land’s lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider, Flow.

The Caribbean’s telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice leader an­nounced its launch of the fastest, most ad­vanced 4G net­work on is­land, en­abling down­load speeds and data through­put rates sev­eral times faster than the ex­tant 3G and 4G tech­nolo­gies.

LTE (Long Term Evo­lu­tion) is the new­est, fastest ‘fourth gen­er­a­tion’ (4G) mo­bile ser­vice, which will let Flow cus­tomers browse the in­ter­net, ac­cess so­cial me­dia, get files, video chat, and stream videos vir­tu­ally in­stan­ta­neously via mo­bile phones and tablets.

In the first in­stance, the 4G LTE net­work will be avail­able in the main pop­u­la­tion cen­tres of Cas­tries, Gros Islet, Vieux Fort, and Soufriere. The up­grade is part of Flow’s on­go­ing in­vest­ment in its mo­bile, in­ter­net, tele­vi­sion and fixed line net­works.

Ac­cord­ing to Flow Coun­try Man­ager Chris Williams, “With this launch, we are of­fer­ing our cus­tomers in­no­va­tion, ex­cel­lence, and value. We are de­liv­er­ing an un­beat­able mo­bile data ex­pe­ri­ence. This will rev­o­lu­tionise the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to con­sumers and busi­nesses in Saint Lu­cia. The free­dom, speed, and func­tion­al­ity af­forded by this tech­nol­ogy is en­tirely un­par­al­leled in the world to­day.

“Flow sub­scribers can now ex­pe­ri­ence data speeds of up to 69Mbps. When you put a Flow LTE SIM in your mo­bile de­vice, you will be able to surf the in­ter­net at speeds com­pa­ra­ble to, and in some cases even greater than your home con­nec­tion, watch the news or live sport­ing events on the go in­clud­ing Foot­ball on the Flow Sports App, and stay in touch with your friends and fam­ily the world over.”

The Flow 4G LTE net­work will en­able users to fully un­leash the amaz­ing data pro­cess­ing power of smart de­vices like the new iPhone, the Sam­sung Galaxy S8 and more. This puts Saint Lu­cia on par with the global gold stan­dard for mo­bile data. In or­der to un­leash the power of 4G LTE, Flow mo­bile cus­tomers must have an LTE-ca­pa­ble hand­set or mo­bile de­vice, and must get a 4G-en­abled SIM card, avail­able at no ad­di­tional cost from any Flow fullser­vice re­tail out­let.
