TSST goes big on fibre investment

10 March 2023

The CEO of Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) has announced a major investment in fibre rollout across the nation.

Lisa Agard said that TSTT has recently approved an investment of more than TT$120 million for an accelerated deployment of fibre infrastructure over the next 18 months throughout Trinidad and Tobago, with fibre passing another 3,000 homes.

In Tobago, 2022 saw TSTT passed more than 3,200 homes, taking the total to more than 15,000 homes in Tobago with fibre connectivity. The additional build out will take the company’s overall investment in fibre in Tobago over the past few years to over TT$50 million.

Quoted by the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday service she said:

“When this is completed, we will have fibre throughout the length and breadth of Tobago; 95% of the island will have coverage,” Agard told local media, which will be unmatched by any other service provider in Tobago.
