Leading communications and entertainment provider Flow says it has been at the forefront of delivering high-speed internet service to hundreds of Jamaican communities.
In a statement, commemorating World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD), Flow maintained that connectivity is the lifeblood of the digital economy and “we are currently bringing a world of opportunities to the fingertips of thousands of Jamaicans”.
“We have also further demonstrated it’s continued commitment to a connected Jamaica with Jump – A programme to bridge the digital divide by providing broadband connectivity, devices and digital training to the most vulnerable households through a public-private partnership (PPP). Hundreds of Jamaicans are currently enrolled in this programme which will transform lives across the country,” Flow Jamaica disclosed.
Flow’s commitment also extends to its partnerships with the Government on innovative solutions like telemedicine, technology in the classroom, public Wi-Fi and transformation of the health sector.
“Together, we are enabling the digital transformation of our nation and supporting our competitiveness in the global marketplace.
“As we continue to welcome these collaborative ventures as the partner of choice for these national developmental programmes, we are mindful that our citizens must also be empowered to participate in the digital economy and, through our Flow Foundation, have been providing free digital literacy training as well as free digital professional upskilling training to thousands of Jamaicans. Our foundation is also connecting hundreds of schools and community spaces across the country,” the telecoms giant noted.
Today, as countries globally mark WTISD, Jamaica stands as an example of what can be achieved through public-private partnerships (PPPs).
Flow Jamaica has pledged to continue “driving technological growth across our country – transforming businesses and connecting communities to create more moments that matter and even more possibilities for a brighter future”.
