Rock Mobile is closer to becoming Jamaica‘s third telecoms provider with Cabinet approving its domestic mobile spectrum licence. Information Minister Fayval Williams says Cabinet accepted recommendations for the approval of a licence on the 700 megahertz spectrum. “You will recall in 2013, the Government of Jamaica gave approval for the allocation and licensing of the 700 megahertz spectrum band with the provision of mobile wireless service, consistent with global trends and its policy objectives. The objectives are to promote competition, innovation and diversity in the telecommunications sector and ensure the optimal return in the shortest possible time for the spectrum assigned,” Mrs Williams revealed at Wednesday morning’s post Cabinet media briefing. Rock Mobile, which is a Jamaican company, has been tasked to provide broadband access to unserved areas across the island.
