Cayman’s sophisticated tourism and financial industries have ensured that telecommunications are as advanced as those you would find in any developed country. There are plenty of options for mobile and residential phone services, and high speed internet connections, both via fixed lines and through mobile data, are available across all three islands.
Amendments to the Information and Communications Technology Authority Act mean that regulators have the power to fine phone, TV and internet providers up to $50,000 for violations to their licenses. For example, if they do not provide the internet speeds that are advertised to customers. This has been great for consumers as it ensures reliability.
Choosing the right provider will depend both on the services available in your area and your personal usage. Bundled options from the same provider can result in significant discounts.
It is worth noting, however, that due to the small population of the Islands, the cost of broadband, residential and mobile phone services tend to be quite a bit higher than in Europe and North America.
Two mobile service providers operate in the Cayman Islands: Digicel and FLOW. Both companies offer prepaid options (or pay-as-you-go top up and plans), as well as postpaid plans (billed per month).
Every provider in the Cayman Islands must be able to provide local and long distance telephone services. All the mobile phone providers offer an International Direct Dialling service and depending on your plan rate, prices are often comparable to those for fixed lines.
