Minister of Public Utilities, Sir Robin Yearwood commended the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), mainly the INET branch, on the launch of its 4G LTE service yesterday.
The 4G LTE Advanced Mobile Service offers mobile, home internet, business internet and voice services at a faster speed.
Yearwood, in congratulating the branch during his speech at the launch, said he is a “happy man to see the final stage of a modern telephone and cellphone system” which can stand up to any other provider in the world.
The Public Utilities minister in encouraging the public to come on board and support a local initiative, declared “it belongs to all of us”.
He jokingly recalled his experience during the trial testing of the service, where his own son swiped his phone to send off assignments to Europe when realising the true speed behind the product.
Sir Robin gave a background of INET and the history of APUA. He also charged workers to ensure that productivity goes up by ensuring a high customer service standard and low prices, as he noted that the public “has options” in this field.
 He also appealed to the general public to assist APUA in improving all its services by reporting faults and problems and bad service.
“This belongs to all of us, so if you see a pipe leaking call somebody, if you see a wire sparking call somebody.”
The launch, which featured a full day of events including giveaways and mobile phone specials from 9 a.m.- 8 p.m. in front the APUA Business Centre on Independence Avenue, culminated with a celebration concert with brand ambassadors, Claudette “CP” Peters, Dennis “Menace” Roberts and a number of other artistes.
