Prime Minister Gaston Browne has pledged to make broadband services accessible and affordable for all citizens.

At the 5th Industrial Revolution Artificial Intelligence conference, hosted by the University of the West Indies Five Islands Campus, he announced the government’s investment in a sub-sea cable to ensure affordable broadband policies.

PM Browne emphasized the importance of this initiative in bridging the digital divide and enhancing data use in sectors like education. He criticized current broadband providers for prioritizing profits over policy alignment, stressing that broadband should be a public good.

If the private sector fails to provide affordable services, the government will intervene to ensure universal access, likening broadband to essential utilities like water and electricity.
