The acquisition of Tele-Barbados marks a significant milestone in Columbus’ entry into the Barbados telecom marketplace. Columbus plans to invest heavily in Barbados over the next 24 to 36 months to offer consumers the full triple play of broadband Internet, digital landline telephone and advanced Internet protocol based video services under the brand name FLOW. In addition, Columbus will be launching a series of corporate data, connectivity and IT services under the brand Columbus Business Solutions.
With our recently announced $225 million credit facility, Columbus is well positioned to make an immediate and significant direct investment in infrastructure in Barbados, resulting in the launch of a host of new advanced consumer and corporate services, the creation of hundreds of new high technology jobs and lower prices leading to a more competitive Barbados in the global economy. We welcome Tele-Barbados’ 60 talented professionals to the Columbus team and we look forward to serving its loyal customers for many years to come.
