There is a new player in the Jamaican telecommunications market: the Barbadian operator, Neptune Communications.

Neptune Communications has received formal approval from the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR), to officially begin operations in Jamaica.

The approval came after Neptune met all the requirements for a license to operate island-wide as the newest satellite technology service provider .

Neptune will provide independent and reliable redundancy for government and corporate customers to ensure more reliable connectivity across the country.

The CEO of Neptune Communications Jamaica, Brian Bennett-Easy, explained that the company obtained official approval on May 10, 2022 and has taken rapid steps to launch its suite of products and services.

“Our goal is to provide our Jamaican customers with the highest level of customer service using technology that is reliable and secure, to bridge those gaps and bring the latest technological advances to the Jamaican market,” added Bennett-Easy, who was appointed CEO in 2021.

“Brian is a highly qualified executive. His depth of market knowledge, his professional background and his leadership skills have had an immediate impact on our vision for Jamaica,” stated Neptune Communications Inc Founder and CEO Julian Jordan.

“As they move forward to innovate in the Jamaican technology landscape, Brian and his team will have our full support,” added the CEO of the parent company, originally from Barbados.

Neptune Communications has already secured commercial agreements with global satellite service providers that guarantee 100 percent geographic coverage of the island and the wider Caribbean region. 

The company’s goal is to keep Caribbean governments and businesses online by providing a resilient set of telecommunications services. 

The company reported that some customer service kits are already on the island, with more on the way and orders in preparation for the upcoming hurricane season, and announced that in the coming weeks it will end its operational cadence, with a launch focus mission critical.
