Columbus Communications TrinidadLtd. is wholly-owned by Columbus. It’s Trinidad’s only true broadband triple play (cable‚ internet and telephony) provider, operating under the brand name Flow
After the June 2005 acquisition of Trinidad and Tobago Trans–cable Company Ltd. (“CCTT”) and securing a new 15-year telecom license in May 2006, Columbus introduced the Flow brand in Trinidad. Setting out on an aggressive network rebuild program, transforming the system from an antiquated one-way, analog system to a state-of-the-art two-way, digital broadband platform, Columbus has invested US$220 million in capital improvements to date.
A new fully digital video headend was constructed in August 2006‚ providing Flow customers access to more than 300 video and audio channels‚ by far the most comprehensive television service in Trinidad. Today, Flow offers a robust digital TV product that includes video on demand, the largest offering of HD channels, digital video recorders and digital music services in addition to economical digital landline telephony service. In addition, Flow offers residential broadband internet packages ranging from an entry-level service of 5 Mbps up to a blazing 100 Mbps.
In partnership with its sister company, Columbus Business Solutions, Trinidad businesses now have access to a broad range of corporate data services including telephony, data storage, disaster recovery, IP services, hosting and business continuity services.
Today, Flow is the leading cable television provider in Trinidad and since commencing network upgrade program, Columbus has grown its customer base to over 240‚000 video, internet and voice subscribers. At the same time, Flow has become a major employer in the country, growing its team of telecom professionals from approximately 200 when it purchased CCTT to over 625 today.
