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.
Mobile phone service options are varied and there are choices to suit any need, including voice, mobile data, text messaging and voicemail.
The mobile providers in the Cayman Islands are Digicel and FLOW. Internet services are available from all four providers: C3, Digicel, FLOW and Logic. High speed fibre optic cables and networks are increasing in availability, with C3, FLOW and Logic providing even higher internet speeds to homes in Grand Cayman than previously possible. Standalone and bundled internet and VoIP options are available, and in some instances discounts are offered for taking more than one service.
Residential phone service choices are plenty with installation times varying from a couple of hours to a couple of weeks depending on the company and the type of service you choose. If you are building a home in a newly developed area and want a fixed line installed, check directly with your provider to confirm the expected time of installation.
Telephone Service Providers
Local & Long Distance Services
More and more people are making do without residential phones and instead relying on their mobile phones to stay in touch. However, families with children often like to have a residential phone, and should you need to make a 911 emergency call, your phone number is used to pinpoint your location. There are several providers in the Cayman Islands.
FLOW is the only provider of residential phones that uses fixed landlines. They offer three options for residential phone accounts: Light, Medium, and Heavy. All three packages have a monthly line rental charge with the difference lying in bundled minutes for each package. The Light package does not include any minutes and customers pay per minute. The Medium package has bundled local minutes while the Heavy package includes local minutes and also minutes to the USA, Canada and the UK, with discounts for calling other countries.
Logic and C3 Pure Fibre offer phone services which allow users to make calls at home using an internet connection rather than traditional fixed lines.
C3 Pure Fibre offers home phone services over their state-of-the-art fibre network, rather than over traditional fixed lines.
Logic’s Chatterbox service works with any internet provider and gives you unlimited international calls for a fixed monthly fee. Several monthly plans are available, depending on which countries you call the most.
For those who want family or friends to be able to call them in Cayman without having to pay for overseas calls, the Chatterbox International Numbers mean Cayman residents can be reached on a US/UK/other country number.
