BTC Fiber Rollout Continues
- 3,000 additional homes connected
- Customers can turn up their speeds this summer
Nassau, The Bahamas, June 21, 2022: The transformation of BTC’s fixed network continues in New Providence and Grand Bahama. The latest news - another 3,000 homes have been connected to a world-class fiber network.
Customers who choose to upgrade to fiber services are able to do more, quicker, and, more efficiently. They are provided with no less than 100mbps of speed on the fiber network and can sign up for speeds up to 600mpbs, providing faster simultaneous downloads and connections on more devices.
Director of Technology Operations, Shantell Cox-Hutchinson commented: “We are keeping the momentum going and delivering exceptional service for our customers. By providing a personal fiber connection directly to the customer’s home, they get to experience the best connectivity, bar none. In the last two months, we’ve upgraded the infrastructure in over ten communities. With summer now in full swing, upgrading to fiber services will allow your children to do everything they love including gaming, streaming, downloading, and uploading content and so much more, while still allowing more than enough bandwidth for you to also stay connected.”
These newly upgraded communities include Back of Town (Grand Bahama), Dorsett Subdivision, Domingo Heights, Joan’s Heights, Meeting Street, Blue Hill, Kennedy Subdivision, Soldier Road, and additional portions of Tropical Gardens.
“As a result of the pandemic, many persons are working in a hybrid environment, spending a few days at the office, and other days working at home. With a fiber connection, we’re making it easier for customers to work remotely. Our fully converged suite of services provides all the connectivity customers need at one affordable price. You can stay connected while at home or on the go with a BTC bundle, which includes superfast fiber speeds, unlimited landline calls including calls to the US, UK, and Canada, TV channels, plus mobile voice and data services at the best rate, with no debate. What’s even better, is for a limited time, customers will receive a free Samsung tablet when signing up on www.btcbahamas.com. It’s the perfect gift for you or your loved one for the summer holidays,” Cox-Hutchinson continued.
“The BTC fiber expansion project is expected to be completed by the close of 2023, and we’ve pledged to fully fiberize New Providence and Grand Bahama. Eastern New Providence is 100% fiberized, and we are proactively migrating customers from the legacy technology to fiber services as we plan to disable the copper network in the coming months,” Cox-Hutchinson continued.
Getting connected is easy, and customers can visit the nearest BTC neighborhood store, call or send a WhatsApp message to CALL BTC (225-5282). Customers also have the option of having a BTC representative visit them using the Concierge service to complete the sign-up process.
