Flow Launches 4GLTE in Grand Fash­ion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Michele-Lau­ren Hack­shaw

Saint Lu­cia joined other Flow ter­ri­to­ries in the Caribbean, in­clud­ing Bar­ba­dos, Cay­man, An­tigua, St Kitts, Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands (BVI) and Turks and Caicos, in launch­ing the lat­est, fastest mo­bile data – 4GLTE on Thurs­day evening with a launch event at Flow Saint Lu­cia’s Bay Walk branch.

Speak­ing at the launch Com­mer­cial Lead, Anselm Mathurin said as a re­sult of the new tech­nol­ogy there will be a more en­hanced user ex­pe­ri­ence. “We’ve ex­pe­ri­enced chal­lenges where we’d like to be mo­bile and have ac­cess to all of the ameni­ties and com­mu­ni­ca­tion con­ve­niences, and with 4GLTE those con­ve­niences are read­ily avail­able,” he said.

Ben­e­fits of the lat­est up­grade in­clude a higher mo­bile data speed of up to 69 Me­gabits per sec­ond (Mbps). Buf­fer­ing shall no longer be an is­sue for those on the go, es­pe­cially for per­sons who rely on data for their pro­fes­sional life. Ad­di­tion­ally, video and voice calls can be an­swered at the same time with the op­tion of switch­ing over to ei­ther with­out miss­ing a mo­ment.

“Your ex­pe­ri­ence is go­ing to be seam­less,” Mathurin said. “We wanted to bring to Saint Lu­cia a ser­vice, a tech­nol­ogy that can make life, work and play a lot more en­joy­able, seam­less, and pro­duc­tive.”

Flow also had more ex­cit­ing news re­gard­ing the re­launch of its pre paid and post paid combo plans which now came with added value. The combo plans in­clude un­lim­ited talk, text and data, lo­cal Flow and in­ter­na­tional min­utes as well as ‘the fastest 4GLTE on is­land’.

The ma­jor­ity of high-end de­vices such as Sam­sung and iPhone are LTE com­pat­i­ble and all that’s re­quired is a sim-card.

Flow is now do­ing pro­mo­tional of­fers where it is giv­ing out a free sim (4GLTE), and with the combo plan cus­tomers will re­ceive dou­ble the min­utes, dou­ble the data.

As part of its cam­paign, Flow has part­nered with two lo­cal per­son­al­i­ties, Taribba do Nasci­mento, founder of Même Bête, and Ricky T, one of Saint Lu­cia’s most suc­cess­ful soca artists, who will both be in the lime­light in the com­ing weeks.

At Thurs­day’s launch Sher­ma­lyn Si­donie-John, Flow’s Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Spe­cial­ist, guar­an­teed a weekend filled with ac­tion in an ef­fort to “al­ways get our cus­tomers con­nected and for them to share that ex­pe­ri­ence with the rest of the world in the fastest way pos­si­ble”. Hence the tag line, ‘Al­ways Con­nected. Al­ways Faster!’

Cel­e­bra­tions were in or­der for the launch of Flow’s high-speed 4G LTE.

Spe­cial guests at the event re­ceived free makeovers from Glam­our Art by Toya.
