Residents of Non Pareil, East Coast Demerara area on Saturday warmly welcomed GTT Fibre to their community as the Guyana Telephone & Telegraph (GTT) company rolled out its keenly anticipated Fibre broadband service, the company said.

GTT’s Chief Operations Officer for Home Solutions & Fixed Services, Eshwar Thakurdin said, given the advantages to subscribers including more bandwidth and faster internet service, it was not surprising that the demand for GTT Fibre remained high.

He said the start of installations in Non Pareil meant GTT remained well on course to achieve its targets set for this year.

“We are encouraged by the response of residents in Non Pareil to our roll-out of GTT Fibre and pleased that we have begun installations in time for the Christmas holidays. We hope this brings even more seasonal joy to subscribers who can now enjoy faster speeds for important things like staying in touch with family and enjoying holiday entertainment,”  he was quoted as saying in a GTT statement.

Thakurdin noted that the Company remains focused on ensuring a steady continuation of the GTT Fibre upgrade programme, bringing major increases in upload and download speeds with reliable connectivity at no increased cost to both current and new subscribers.
