Fixed Caricom data roaming rate coming

CARICOM Chair & Barbados PM Mia Amor Mottley announced plans for a fixed single CARICOM telecoms roaming rate covering the cost of data for popular social media platforms; expected to go live within this year.

The Barbados PM Mottley said in many cases these roaming rates are punitive and persons can be bankrupted when they travel because from country to country no one knows what the roaming rates may be.

She said the plan is to have as fixed roaming rate for messaging and voice calls. This she said is what it means to make decisions as a Caricom family.
