Came across this link on twitter today, hat tip to Samantha for sharing the link. These are applications to be mobile providers. There was an RFP for a 3rd mobile provider and I am assuming these are the applicants. I’m surprised that the list is this short and there is not a company the likes of AT&T, although I don’t know who comprises Star Mobile. Also, why is Cable and Wireless on the list? Aren’t they major shareholders in bmobile? I never thought of Flow entering that market but that’s a good move for them. I sent an email to get some clarification. Please share your thoughts with us in the comments below. Do you think that Trinidad will benefit from a 3rd mobile provider?
