Sure South Atlantic in Partnership with Star Solutions Delivers LTE to the Falkland Islands
July 16, 2019 – Richmond, BC – Sure South Atlantic Ltd., a member of Batelco Group, a leading telecommunications provider, and Star Solutions, a global leader in mobile network infrastructure products, expand their partnership by delivering GSM and LTE mobile services to the Falkland Islands.
Sure had previously deployed a GSM network in the Islands; this has now been upgraded with Star Solutions’ GSM and 4G LTE mobile network infrastructure. The new network and services were turned on and fully operational in August of last year. Falkland subscribers can now enjoy fast and reliable broadband network services and use the latest applications and smartphones.
“We are committed to offering the most up to date mobile services to our subscribers in the Islands. The recent network upgrade is an indication of our continual endeavor to fulfill this promise. 4G LTE has been added to provide our customers with the latest technology, meeting the growing demand for broadband data,” said Ian Kelly, CEO of Sure.
“We are excited to further extend our relationship and deployments with Sure. Our robust and scalable solutions complement their deployment needs to offer voice and high-speed broadband data services on the islands,” said Jack Mar, CEO of Star Solutions.
Headquartered in Guernsey, Sure provides telecommunications and related services across the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and in the British Overseas Territories of Ascension, Falklands, Saint Helena and Diego Garcia.
Sure provides fixed voice, mobile, broadband and Cloud services in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man. In the British Overseas Territories, Sure operates under exclusive licences with full-feature networks delivering voice, broadband data services and, in certain markets, TV.
The corporate division of the business, Sure International, specialises in offshore connectivity, enabling those companies that operate in the islands to reliably and efficiently connect and transact with their global partners.
