The company’s objective is to keep Caribbean governments and companies online by providing a suite of resilient telecommunications services.

“Within the coming weeks, Neptune Jamaica and the wider group will finalise our operational cadence. Some customer service kits are already on the island, with more en route and on order in preparation for an expected above-average hurricane season.
