By Dialogo January 01, 2010A new fiber-optic cable is set to increase Guyana’s bandwidth capacity, reported the Web site Caribbean Net News. The cable is set to increase Internet capacity by 3,000 times and will bring national development opportunities including e-governance, e-health, e-learning and e-security, among others, said officials from the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Co., or GT&T. “We hope that within a short period we will be able to unveil a package of policies and services that would be progressively implemented in these sectors that would see a transformation in the way we do business in Guyana,” said Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo to the news Web site. The GT&T’s Shore End Cable Landing Project is expected to be completed by the middle of this year. The cable originates in Trinidad and will pass through Suriname.
